Default Easy now

Never underestimate a senior swimmer in any stroke. The same day i swam the English Channel the first time, a 70-year old named george Brunstead did it and came in just a few hours behind me.
And, on the subject of distance fly...only one person has done the Channel backstroke, but two have done it fly! With the right engine and technique, it can be a great endurance stroke.
