We used specialized sports software to analyze streamline movement and the initiation of the butterfly stroke in competitive swimming. The movements analyzed were the initial glide phase, kicking phase, catch phase, front/back sweep, and the recovery phase. A biomechanical analysis was conducted through angle and body position measurements.
