In this video lesson, Synchronized Swimming Instructor, Ymajahi Brooks, teaches the torpedo scull technique for synchronized swimming.
Video Transcript: "YMAJAHI BROOKS: "The next scull is called the torpedo scull. It is known as a foot first scull. You'll be traveling towards your feet with your arms up over your head, doing something like a Miss America wave. Out and in, out, in. The idea is to keep your face, your hips, your feet at the surface of the water, not splashing any water and trying to smile. Here we go."
Brightly smiling women in colorful one-piece bathing suits, donning white swimming caps, rising slowly out the water on a giant birthday cake replete with sparklers, diving off into the swimming pool in a perfectly timed sequence, each swimmer keeping form with the person before them. A bird’s eye shot of a circle of swimmers, each kicking their legs and waving their arms to create a kaleidoscope of geometric patterns. A beautiful water ballet, where all of the dancers move to a common, well-choreographed theme. These are just some of the tricks that an experienced synchronized swim team can pull off.
