Swimming Facts: Strokes

    The oldest form of stroke used is the breaststroke.
    In butterfly stroke and breaststroke, swimmers need to touch the pool with both hands simultaneously when they finish. Swimmers touch the pool with only one hand when they finish in freestyle and backstroke swimming events.
    The most popular freestyle stroke is the crawl, considered the fastest stroke.
