Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the progress of 17 women swimmers, competing at the national level, who stepped up considerably their training schedules between two evaluation sessions one year apart. These were compared to a larger group of 97 national level women swimmers who were evaluated once. The swimming performance, training background and physical characteristics of the latter group were used as reference data in analysing the progress of the experimental group.
