Karl’s backstroke wisdom

Over the last week Karl has been working with the swimmers on backstroke technique.  He’s asked me to post these 4 images showing that there is no one single position for ‘take your marks’ for a backstroke start: everyone needs to find the position that is most effective for them.  Please pass them on to your swimmers. Thanks!
