Better your breaststroke
Around the Academy:

Step one

We will now concentrate on improving the streamlined position.

Breaststroke is not a very streamlined stroke so it is important to make the most of the streamlining whenever you can.

Stretch in between each stroke and make sure your arms are close and your legs are together.

Put your face in the water as you stretch.

This will make the position even better.
