The stroke frequency of M1 was similar to that of Anthony Nesty but stroke length was considerably less. 61 m) of all the squad swimmers. 97 cycles/s). 75m). 23 m/s (M1). 22 m/s (M1). 52 m/s). This would be expected to incur a large metabolic cost in accelerating back to top speed. 57 m/s). The other swimmers had ranges of approximately 1 m/s. 92 m/s) despite having the smallest frequency. This indicated good streamlining during the non-propulsive phases. The group was split with respect to the timing of maximum velocity.

The group was split with respect to the timing of maximum velocity. Four of the seven squad members M2, M4, F1, F3 attained the greatest velocity towards the end of the stroke cycle corresponding to the finish of the backsweep combined with the second kick. Swimmers F3 and M1 attained their greatest velocities during the first kick. Swimmer M3 attained a maximum velocity during the outsweep. The time of attainment of the lowest velocities varied substantially among the swimmers from prior to hand entry to the commencement of the insweep.
