Is it OK to swim breaststroke in a triathlon?
Swimming in a triathlon isn’t about being the quickest out of the block: it’s about conserving your leg muscles for the ensuing bike and run. This is generally why you don’t see people swimming breakstroke at triathlons as it’s much more leg intensive. Having said that, you absolutely can swim breaststroke!
What is the best swim stroke for a triathlon?
