What is the barracuda pike position in synchronized swimming?

a barracuda pike is a submerged pike position at 45 degrees or less.

Your body should be bent up towards your legs as far as possible with the goal to get your chest to your knees and your hands should be sculling just behind your heels.

What do you need for swimming?

To swim is to move through water. People swim using their arms and/or legs. Swimming can be divided into several "strokes:" breaststroke, front crawl, butterfly, and backstroke being among them. The freestyle, in competition, is a swim race where you can swim any of the four strokes. Almost everyone chooses front crawl. Swimmers move through the water using the combination of other body parts. Swimmers need to be able to stay above water and sometimes be able to hold your breath for a long time. A person needs to be healthy if it wants to do it as a sport.

What is a good time for freestyle swimming for a man?

A good time depends on a lot of different things. Like how long the event is and how old you are.

If you are a college swimmer however a good time would be about 20-21 and a great time is around 18-20

How and when did the sport swimming originate?

Drawings from the Stone Age were found in "the cave of swimmers" near Sura, dating back to 2000 B.C. There is evidence that swimming was also a very popular sport in Greece and Italy in the original Olympic Games. In 1538, Nicolas Wynman, German professor of languages, wrote the first swimming book. Competitive swimming in Europe started around 1800, mostly using breaststroke. The front crawl, then called the trudgen (now known predominantly as the "front crawl" or "freestyle") was introduced in 1873 by John Arthur Trudgen, copying it from Native Americans. Swimming was part of the first modern 1896 Olympic Games in Athens. In 1900, Backstroke was included as an Olympic Event. In 1908the world swimming association Federation Internationale de Natation was formed. Butterfly was first a variant of breaststroke, until it was accepted as a separate style in the 1952 Olympics. At present, there are the four recognized strokes of butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle; while the IM ("Individual Medley") is a combination of all four of the strokes in a specific order. Butterfly is done first, followed by backstroke, breaststroke, and then finishing with freestyle. Freestyle is where you can swim any stroke you want. During a freestyle event any swimmer chose to do another stroke. in Athens. In 1900, Backstroke was included as an Olympic Event.
