Lifting Performance in Aquatic Sports

Performance in aquatic sports is limited by the ability to maximize propulsive forces and minimize resistive forces.

Despite its importance in water polo, the eggbeater kick has received scant attention by sports scientists. Indirect evidence suggests that lift forces play an important role in the eggbeater kick. It appears that players improve by modifying their motions to use lift forces in preference to drag forces.

Read Ross H. Sanders analysis in his paper on "Lifting Performance in Aquatic Sports" from the 16th International Symposium on Biomechanics in Sports (1998)
