The Freestyle Finish

  • Does anyone know how to finish the freestyle stroke? I see a lot of different techniques being used between professional and amateur athletes. Do you touch the wall with two hands or just one?

  • You touch the wall with one hand! For a faster finish, many people glide into the wall after their final stoke. First, take your final stroke. Then, with one arm is extended and one arm at your side, glide in to the wall. Hope this helps!

  • One handed touch for freestyle and backstroke. Two hands for Breaststroke and Butterfly. Always finish hard to the wall! Gliding in could mean being out touched by the swimmer next to you. Best bet is to take your final breath before the flags, dig in, and finish hard to the touch. Even if it's a half stroke, finish into the wall!
