The butterfly stroke can be broken down into five main components: the initial glide phase, kicking phase, catch phase, front and back sweep phase, and recovery phase. The subject is a 20-year-old female collegiate swimmer. The purpose of this analysis is to differentiate the various stages streamline and the initiation of the butterfly stroke, and evaluate each step using kinematics.
