The 23- year- old Michael Phelps has won more gold medals than any other swimmer in history. Some people say that the secret to his success is all in his form. When all the swimmers dive underwater, you could see their heads pop up after about five or six butterfly kicks. Phelps, however, does about twice that much. You can see, when he does his freesyle stroke, that unlike most swimmers his fingertips go in first creating less bubbles. If your arms just slap into the water, you force the air with your arm to go in, too. When he does a flipturn/turn, he goes deeper into the water. And the new 600$ swimsuits from Speedo, act like the skin of a shark. All of this makes him go 30% faster.
