Video Transcript: "PHILLIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village, I'm Phillip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. As far as the breaststroke breathing is concerned, it's really quite simple. As opposed to breathing every three strokes for freestyle, breathing whenever you wish for backstroke, in the breaststroke, you're going to be breathing every stroke. So, it's that pull breathe portion of our breaststroke. So, it's basically pull breathe, face back in the water. Pull breathe, face back in the water. So, you're going to be taking one stroke every breath. In a racing environment, this is paramount. Again, the technique and skill of this stroke makes all the difference between being disqualified and finishing a race."
