Sprint Freestyle Start
In this segment, Kara reviews the main points of a sprint start: track start, toes curled over the edge, legs shoulder width apart, be on the ball of your foot, grip front of the blocks and tension in your arms. When the signal is given, start with a strong pull on the arms followed by an explosive leg push-off. The body should be streamlined before entering the water.
