Butterfly
Introduction

Butterfly is a difficult stroke to swim as it needs both stamina and style.

The movements you need to make, however, are not difficult because you will have done many of them before in other strokes.

One thing you need to know if you want to race butterfly is that your arms must come out of the water on every stroke.

They must not drag through the water when they move from your hips to the entry position.
