The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between swimming performance and selected biomechanical variables of Indian male swimmers. To achieve this purpose of the study fifty Indian male swimmers who had attended coaching Camps at NIS Patiala and Delhi were selected as subjects in the age group between 18 to 23 years. Swimming performance of the swimmers was determined through freestyle 100 M swim and the time was recorded. To determine stroke length and stroke frequency 50 M swim test was administered to the swimmers based on the number of strokes the swimmer took to complete 50 M swim, stroke length was recorded in meters and stroke frequency was scored in seconds. Pearson correlation coefficient results proved the relationship between swimming performance and selected biomechanical variables were presented proved that biomechanical variables stroke length and stroke frequency were significantly related with swimming performance of the simmers as the obtained ‘r’ values 0.612 and -0.406 were significant at 0.05 level. It was concluded that swimming performance are significantly related with stroke length and stroke frequency of Indian male swimmers.
