The Professionals - Swimming

World of Warcraft

Batchelor: This Blood Elf swims old-fashioned sidestroke, and moves forward with a scissors kick and sculling. If he turned his hands to face away from where he’s moving, he’d move faster. His movement backwards combines breaststroke legs with short sweeps of the hand, a relaxing but inefficient means of propulsion. What puzzles me is how little the water impedes him when fighting and the length of time he can hold his breath; I can only assume Blood Elves have a few evolutionary adaptations I’m unaware of.
