How do you know if a swimmer is close to the end if he is swimming backstroke?

if there is a backstroke flag ( a flag hung above the surface of the water, near the pool end), then he/she would know if he/she is close to the end of the pool. if you swam past the backstroke flag, then of course, that would mean that you are close to the end of the pool. ^_^ Most swimmers don't just guess when the end of the pool is getting close. They count how many strokes it will take them to get to the wall. When they still have more lengths left, they subtract one stroke from their number and turn on their stomach and flip over.
