Synopsis: Written by a sports scientist, a coach and a physician, Swimming is the broadest work yet written in this field for sports science and sports medicine alike. The text is authored by a team with outstanding credentials in terms of personal experience as competitive swimmers, in research productivity, coaching success, and the medical care of high performance swimmers and swimming teams. Swimming has been written primarily for athletics trainers and team coaches but is also intended as a specialist reference for doctors, allied health professionals and for athletes themselves. Chapters cover the characteristics of swimming including important concepts in propulsion, functional anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, biomechanics and psychology. Also included are the principles and aims of nutrition, injury including risks, mechanisms of injury, prevention, immediate care, treatment, rehabilitation and return to training.

From the Back Cover: This volume introduces a new series and is the first Handbook of Sports Medicine and Science. It is published uder the auspices of the International Olympic Committee and with the blessing of FINA.

Swimming has been written primarily for athlietic trainers and team coaches, as well as medical doctors in family practice, health-related professionals and athletes themselves. It covers biology, mechanics and training, and gives practical guidance on medical issues related both preparation and treatment.

The section on mechanical aspects of swimming is central to the book. An introduction describes important concepts in swimming propulsion, the four basic sweeps and the role of the kick. This is followed by extensive sequential photography; this section ends with the latest information on starts and turns.

Written by a sports scientist, a coach and a physician, Swimming is the broadest work yet written in this field for sports medicine and science alike.
