Efficiency always triumphs over fitness!

In every group, in every swimming club, in every country, anywhere in the world there are “little kids”: young swimmers who are smaller than others their own age, and who often find it frustrating to be the ones who will grow “next season.”

Long-term success will ultimately be determined by technique and skills, attitude and desire.

At senior elite level, where the training methods, aerobic fitness, strenght and other physiological attributes of the top swimmers are relatively similar, success wil be determined by factors that are not related to growth. All swimmers, regardless of size, strenght height or other physical characteristics, can learn to swim and improve technique and skills.
