Dear Biomchers

I am a final year engineering student, and for a project, I require
information on the biomechanics of swimming, particularly on the
force and velocity profiles of the various strokes.

I am also looking for information on the effects of dry land
training, and in particular 'isokinetic' training (as on the mini-
gym) on swimming performance.

I have found numerous references on these topics, but have been
unable to find most of them as the journals are not available in
South Africa. If possible, I would appreciate it if any articles
could be sent as a file over e-mail.
