Video Transcript: "PHILLIP TORIELLO: Hello and welcome to Expert Village, I'm Phillip Toriello from the Avila Bay Athletic Club. Just as with any sprints, your backstroke sprint events are going to be 50 and 100 meter events. In these particular events, you're not going to be taking--I mean, while technique is important and I stress technique no matter what stroke you're doing. Technique is important. You're going to be having--you're going to be performing a higher turnover for this particular event because you want to get there first. There's no two ways about it. There's no pacing, it's all about racing and knees. So, your turnover is going to be high but not by compromising your thumb out, pinky in, bending and push and following all the way through. You're still going to maintain technique but you really going to focus on getting there first."
