Arnie / Arnette Profile
The Arnie type swimmer is usually a man with a strong build and a history of team sports like rugby or football – the Arnette is usually slightly less muscular. They usually have an abundance of lean muscle especially in the upper body which usually leads to their legs quickly sinking while swimming. As a result the main technique focus is on their body position in the water.
