ON THE COVER

Arkady Vyatchanin is a newly-minted Serbian. On April 22, 2013—after 13 years on Russia’s national team—Vyatchanin announced

his intent to untie himself from swimming for his homeland, and began pursuing another country to represent. Portugal, Spain,

France, the Netherlands, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, most eastern European countries—his search went on…until

last October when Serbia welcomed him to its national team.

FEATURES

012 SWIMMING’S “ORPHAN” FINDS HOME IN SERBIA

by Annie Grevers

Russian-born Arkady Vyatchanin has endured quite an interesting journey since capturing the Olympic bronze medal in the 200

backstroke at Beijing in 2008. After a disappointing London Games in 2012 and a series of disagreements with the Russian

Swimming Federation, the 31-year-old will start a new chapter in his swimming career by representing Serbia internationally.

016 TAKING IT OUT FAST

by George Block

Part III in a continuing series on saving scholarship swimming focuses on what is being done by the College Swimming

Coaches Association and discusses common issues and fund raising. It also suggests ways of what we can do to help solve the

problem.

019 PAVING THE WAY

by Michael J. Stott

Success (or failure) of a taper depends largely upon the previous quality of work. Coaches of three USA Swimming club teams

share how they taper their age group and senior swimmers.

022 SWIMMING TECHNIQUE MISCONCEPTIONS: HULL LENGTH

by Rod Havriluk

A common technique misconception is that maintaining the entry arm straight in front of the body on freestyle can increase a

swimmer’s body length. Actually, the hull length of a ship (or swimmer’s body) is determined by the length of the body at the surface.

While a longer hull has an advantage, a submerged arm does nothing to increase hull length.

024 GOLDMINDS: G.O.T. TRAINING?

by Wayne Goldsmith

Goal-Oriented Training (G.O.T.) challenges swimmers to achieve specific performance related goals in every training activity. The

volume of training is not determined by adherence to a pre-determined training plan, but by the swimmer’s commitment, effort and

level of engagement.
