The purpose of this study was to investigate a simple method for determination of critical swimming velocity (Vcri). Vcri is defined by Wakayoshi et al. (1992) as the swimming speed which could theoretically be maintained forever without exhaustion, and is expressed as the slope of a regression line between swimming distance (D) and swimming time (T) obtained at various swimming speeds. To determine Vcri, 20 well-trained swimmers were measured at several swimming speeds ranging from 1.25 m/sec to 1.8 m/sec until exhaustion in a swimming flume. A regression analysis of D on T calculated for each swimmer showed highly linear relationships (r=0.999, p<0.001), and t...
