Tips for the perfect race finish with coach Andrew

Want to improve your finishes? We've got you covered.

Tips for the perfect race finish:

  • Never use two hands for a freestyle finish!

There's nothing worse than finishing a race and realising you've been disqualified because you've touched the wall with two hands. If this is you at training stop it now. What you practice at training will come through on race day. It's simply not worth it. 

  • Try and time your finish so it's not too hard... or too slow. 

To generate more power during your finishes, try increasing your stroke rate slightly. This can help you maintain momentum and maximise your speed as you reach the wall.
