What strokes are in the swimming medley?

With swimming there is two kinds of medleys. First, there is the individual medley where the swimmer swims all four strokes in one race. Also called for short an IM. In this race, the swimmer will swim the strokes in the following order- butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle. The swimmer swims a different stroke for each quarter of the race. So for example, if a swimmer was doing a 200 IM the swimmer would swim a 50 of each stroke. Second, there is a medley relay. In a relay, you have four swimmers who all swim a quarter of the race each. In a medley relay though the order is different from an IM. The order of the strokes would be backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and finally freestyle. Hope this helps;3
