MONA’s breaststroke technique benefits from science in a number of ways:

  • Streamline position after each stroke
  • Minimum resistance throughout the stroke cycle
  • Maximum arm propulsion due to arm motion and body position
  • Maximum leg propulsion due to knee control and foot motion
  • Optimal arm and leg coordination
  • Breathing motion with minimal body distortion

The application of science produces a breaststroke technique that goes faster with less energy.

Details of the scientific applications are found in publications:

  • Breaststroke breathing
  • Streamline position
  • Dolphin kick
  • Beginning of pull
