mechanical power output, technique and drag, each individually, but also in concert, determine swimming performance is the subject of this enquiry. This overview of swimming biomechanics focuses on three performance factors: (i) generation of propulsion in water; (ii) drag encountered by the body during

in their mechanical properties, including rates of force activation and deactivation, maximum unloaded shortening velocities and the shortening velocities at which maximum mechanical power output and maximum mechanical efficiency occur. In short, it would make mechanical sense to perform fast

parameter because it is proportional to maximum force production and maximum mechanical power output of the cell. This raises the question which mechanism limits the cross-sectional area of a muscle cell, and we have investigated the relationship between cross- sectional area and the oxidative capacity to
