IMPORTANT: Amendments to FINA rules

Please be aware that the amended FINA rules of swimming (below) came into force from 1st October 2013:-

Backstroke: At the finish, some part of the body must be breaking the surface.Turn, as the swimmer turns onto their front to execute the turn, they must immediately deploy the continuous single arm pull or double arm pull (if an arm pull is used) to initiate the turn.

Breaststroke: At the turn and finish, the touch must be made with both hands simultaneously and separated. There must be no contact between the hands as the touch is made on the wall. At the turn, as the swimmer leaves the wall the body must be on the breast. That is to say, as soon as the feet have left the wall, the body must be inclined towards the breast, i.e. the shoulders must be 89 degrees or less towards the horizontal.
