Breaststroke/Butterfly Hands - Another Further Update

5th February 2014

Following the recently issued clarification from FINA, there have been a number of queries regarding the position of the hands in Breaststroke and Butterfly following the start and whilst streamlining, amongst other points during the race.

The mention of the separation of the hands in FINA Rules SW 7.6 and 8.4 relates specifically to the touch at the turn and finish of the race.

The FINA interpretation therefore has no impact on the judging of any other area of the stroke.
