Myrtha Backstroke System

For safe and consistent backstroke starts at high-level competitions, Myrtha Pools has developed a footrest wedge system for backstroke starts. The footrest provides swimmers with firm support for race starts and eliminates the chance of the swimmers’ feet slipping off the wall – a common problem experienced by backstrokers. The system ensures a consistently safer start, race after race, and also offers some performance advantages.

 

The backstroke start wedge has a stainless-steel base covered with anti-slip material allowing the athlete to place both feet on the wedge in preparation for the start. The wedge rests firmly on the pool wall (or touch pad) at water level and is connected to a cable system that supports the device from the block above.

 

The Backstroke Starting System is height adjustable (+/- 4cm from surface) depending on the preference of the swimmer. And the system is quickly removed from the block by race officials immediately after each start so as not to interfere with turns or the race finish.
