A great start can give a swimmer an edge on his/her competition while a poor start forces the swimmer to exert large amounts of energy just to catch up. Two starts utilized by competitive swimmers are the Track Start (TS) and the Grab Start (GS). Bloom J., Hosler W., Disch J.

Swimming Technique,; Bowers J., Cavanagh P. A biomechanical comparison of the grab and conventional starts in competitive swimming. Biomechanics and Medicine in Swimming II, Recently the world governing body of aquatic sport has approved the use of a new starting platform (Omega OSB11), and it is currently being used at all international events.

Due to the recent approval, swimmers are modifying their start techniques to be able to maximize performance from the new platform. This study investigated the effectiveness of the grab and track competitive swimming start. The grab start was faster than the conventional start for timed distances of m (Michaels.

The sport takes place in pools or open water (e.g., in a sea or lake). Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with varied distance events in butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle, and individual addition to these individual events, four.

Nine elite swimmers ( 7 kg; 7 cm; 7 years; 7 FINA points scoring) performed the starts on the OMEGA OSB11 starting block. It was estimated by Cossor and Mason that at the Sydney Olympic Games start times comprised % to % of the overall race time.
