Coach Frank Busch begins with an on-deck overview of the components of successful breaststroke before moving his instruction into the water. With demonstrator Amanda Beard, Busch shares several drills along with a full stroke review that emphasize the importance of the line and timing of the stroke. Coach DeMont shares sculling drills, Augie Busch isolates kicking technique, while Greg Rhodenbaugh shares timing drills. This video provides a realistic cross-section of demonstrators, each with different strength areas in their particular stroke, that show how the important components of the stroke can be utilized on an individual basis. After each segment, the demonstrator swims a set of 4 X 25's descending from easy to fast, giving a look at the efficiency of a variety of styles. All demonstrations include above water, underwater and slow motion footage

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the tender age of fourteen, Amanda Beard walked onto the pool deck at the Atlanta Olympics carrying her teddy bear, Harold, and left with two silvers and a gold medal. She competed in three more Olympic games, winning a total of seven medals, and enjoyed a lucrative modeling career on the side. At one point, she was the most downloaded female athlete on the Internet.Yet despite her astonishing career and sex-symbol status, Amanda felt unworthy of all her success. Unaware that she was suffering from clinical depression, she hid the pain beneath a megawatt smile. With no other outlet for her feelings besides the pool, Amanda expressed her emotions through self-destructive behavior. In her late teens and twenties, she became bulimic, abused drugs and alcohol, and started cutting herself.Her low self-esteem led to toxic relationships with high-profile men in the sports world. No one, not even her own parents and friends, knew about the turmoil she was going through. Only when she met her future husband, who discovered her cutting herself, did Amanda realize she needed help.Through her renewed faith in herself; the love of her family; and finally the birth of her baby boy, Blaise, Amanda has transformed her life. In this book, she speaks frankly about her struggles with depression, the pressures to be thin, and the unhealthy relationships she confused for love. In the Water They Can't See You Cry is a raw, compelling story of a woman who gained the strength to live as bravely out of the water as she did in it
