The Professionals - Swimming

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Batchelor: Oblivion characters swim breaststroke with the head out of the water and an inclined body position: a sure sign of a struggling swimmer. There is only minimal propulsion obtained from a poor kick, while the arms start well but follow with a minimal downsweep and wide hesitant recovery. These are all the hallmarks of a classic beginner timing issue. In real life, your avatar would be ill-advised to swim beyond his depth and should get some armbands.
