Swimming with large, bulky paddles puts strain on the shoulder joint and can damage or wear down the swimmer over longer intervals of training. Overuse or any incorrect stroke mechanics over thousands of repetitions is a proven recipe for injury and loss of efficiency in training.

There is often only one opportunity to introduce a child to the sport of swimming. The FINIS Mermaid Fin is a legitimate early training tool that introduces our great sport in a fun and imaginative way, making it a great addition to any backyard pool or swim center.
Like pools in the United States, pools in Australia are most frequently sanitized with about 1.5 – 5 parts per million chlorine. Aussie swimmers notice that the chlorine lingers on hair and skin, even after normal showering. No product in the Australian market eliminates this lingering chlorine.

“I am so excited to be able to debut this suit in Barcelona,” said U.S. National Team swimmer Megan Romano. “I take a lot of confidence in knowing that I’m wearing the fastest suit in the market, and I love the patriotism of the red, white and blue design.”
“We are extremely lucky to have such an incredible swimmer join our team,” said FINIS President John Mix. “It would be enough if all she did were win gold medals and set world records, but this young woman is so remarkable on her own. Her drive, her will to succeed, to overcome adversity; we can all learn a lot from Mallory Weggemann.”
Breaststroke is arguably the most difficult stroke to coach, whether your swimmers are new to the sport or have more experience. Having said that, a well executed breaststroke is a thing of beauty and is well worth the time spent perfecting it.
Great swimmers have an element of grace and fluidity to their strokes. Even if they are exerting a great amount of effort while racing towards the wall, their technique holds strong. They know, through countless hours of repetition in training, that the easiest way to swim fast is to maintain the most efficient form possible.
