Short Course Swimming

Swimming is a popular Olympic sport, athletes will compete for medals in the four main strokes – freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly as well as competing in relay events. The term short course is used to identify a pool that is 25m in length.

Short course swimming is traditionally faster than long course swimming due to more turns against a wall which increases the swimmers speed.

Event distances range from 50m to 1500m and the winner is the person that finishes the race in the fastest time.

Quick Facts
