ABSTRACT
This article presents several suggestions regarding the breathing technique to be followed by butterfly stroke swimmers. Many swimmers, especially younger swimmers, think that the most important thing about taking a breath is getting air. That makes a lot of sense. But to become a really good swimmer one should take it one step further. If a swimmer takes a forward breath in butterfly, the idea is to keep his eyes down and the head low. The lower the breath, the less a swimmer has to lift his body out of the water.
