It is such a vigorous stroke. I could never get it down right.
It had been a long while since I’d heard or seen “there oughta be a law!” Perfect setting for it. :D
“In a way” there is. Social pressure pretty much keeps people from swimming when everyone else is just splashing around. “Summer league” or “rec league” rules usually allow for a learning period and/or and ADA exemption if needed for those who can’t do the legal stroke for some reason. (Sometimes not until after threat of legal action, which is really stupid since it’s a _recreation_ league. Duh. Usually that’s when common sense prevails, since someone says, “This is supposed to be for fun. Why do we want to spend money in legal battles keeping someone else from having fun? Just to enforce rules?”)
The Man Who Disqualified His Own Children. (Separate Incidents)
Even though I “studied” at the Santa Clara Swim Center (where a lot of Olympic swimmers hung out) I never could get the idea of the butterfly stroke from my head to my body. So I moved to Colorado.
By rights, Blake should only be allowed to Doggy Paddle..
The defining thing about Butterfly is that the arm recovery is above the water surface. What the legs do is, technically, up to you. (Look it up – Butterfly started out as a variant on Breaststroke. It It got split off as a competitive stroke in its own right precisely because the new, showy-but-efficient recovery was making other variants untenable.)
