Lower Limb Kinematics and Flow Characteristics of the Water Polo Egbeater Kick

The water polo 'eggbeater kick' involves a cyclical action of the lower limbs producing upward forces to support players in an elevated position to pass, receive a pass, shoot for goal, or block those of an opponent. Download details of a study by Ross Sanders which identlfies variables associated with height sustained over several kick cycles. Credit: ISBS - Conference Proceedings Archive,…

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 …
