Data analysis of the turning technique process of swimming athletes assisted by computer technology



In order to optimize the swimming athletes’ turning technology and improve the athlete’s swimming performance, this paper analyzes the data collected with the help of computer technology, aiming to make coaches better guide the athletes to master essentials of turning technique. Based on the existing research results, this paper summarizes the kinematic parameters of the research object, and conducts reliability analysis of the kinematic parameters. Then with the time of turning 15 m as the core of the kinematic parameters, this paper explores the influence of kinematic parameters, such as the distance from the pool wall before turning, speed before and after turning and rollover time in the swimming process on the time of turning 15 m, and then sums up the key influencing factors of turning technique. Lastly, according to the related kinematic parameters, it puts forward some suggestions on the optimization of the swimming turning technique.
