Never before has one book taken such a comprehensive look at the evolution, science, and coaching application of competitive swimming. In Breakthrough Swimming, legendary swimming coach and researcher Cecil Colwin provides a rich perspective on the development of the sport and explains major advances in stroke mechanics, training methods, and racing techniques. Accompanied by richly detailed illustrations, this engaging text is one of the most insightful written works on the sport. It makes clear sense out of the scientific principles and puts into context the historical changes in the sport. Not only will you gain a greater understanding of competitive swimming through its origins and evolution, but you’ll also gain these valuable skills:

  • Improve your stroke technique, starts, and turns.

  • Improve your feel of the water by learning to anticipate and effectively manipulate the reacting flow of the water.

  • Understand the hydrodynamics of swimming and learn how water reacts to the forces you apply with each swimming stroke.

  • Improve your conditioning and develop a better training program by understanding the principles of training.

  • Learn how to design different types of workouts to produce specific physiological effects.

  • Learn how to plan a seasonal program and how to relate your training to the pace of the race you intend to swim.


The book includes a chapter contributed by Dr. David Pyne, sport physiologist to the 2000 Australian Olympic swimming team. Pyne covers the physiology of modern swimming training and the preparation of swimming teams for top-flight international competition.
