Breaststroke Technique-Late Breath

Breaststroke Technique: Why we like the late breath technique Sitting in front of the television last summer, I was intrigued watching South African swimmer, Tatjana Schoenmaker, win the Olympic gold medal in the 200-meter breaststroke. Her technique of holding her head down underwater longer than the other swimmers is a technique that I had rarely seen used before. It obviously worked for Tatjana.
