Asked in Swimming Events

What are two types of starts done on the starting block?

User Avatar
one possible (most used) start is the "track start" in which you place your feet shoulder width apart and your toes about at the center of your lead foot (lead foot should be dominant). the other is the front end start in which both feet are at the front of the block and you place your hands on the outside of your feet, while if done correctly both starts are good the track start is supposed to be faster while the front end gets you farther. if done correctly (and with a strong base) the front end start can be faster than the average start as well

Over the past years, we have found many improvements in order to swim faster and make times more accurate. Swim suits have become more durable to the water, in a sense to make you go faster. Touch pads have also been introduced, making a substitute for timers.

Where is the thermal time relay?

User Avatar
On a bosch CIS or CIS E fuel injection system there is a thermal time switch located on the engine upper radiator coolant hos at the head. This device controls the cold start injector timedto engine temperature, cold engine up to about 10 seconds of injection, hot engine 1 or 2 seconds of injection. This switch is used on many European models (VW, MB, etc.) Since you did not provide a make, year and model of the vehicle this is only a guess.

How do you score a multi team swim meet?

User Avatar
It depends on the type of meet.- At a high school swim meet, a single team will get a number of different scores, a different one against each other team that is there. It is scored as though there were only two teams. For example- team A gets first in an event, B gets second, and C gets third. In the meet between teams B and C, B will get the points for first and B will get the points for second because team A doesn't exist at their dual meet. In the end, team A could could win against team B and lose to team C, but they will get first out of two and second out of two, not second out of three. Club swim meets are a bit easier- If team A gets first in an event, B gets second, and C gets third, A gets points for first, B gets points for second, and C gets points for third, so it would be second out of three, not first out of two and second out of two. ~Hope I helped~
