in swimming all the strokes in IM order are: * butterfly * backstroke * breaststroke * freestyle
the correct order of swimming strokes for the individual medly is butterfly first, then backstroke, then breastroke then finally freestyle :)
It stands for individual medley because it has all four strokes. There for its a medley
both of the events include the strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breastroke, and freestyle. thought the order of the strokes is different in the individual medley the order of the strokes is: fly, back, breast, free in the medley relay the order of the strokes is: back, breast, fly, free
The main strokes for competitive swimming are freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and the butterfly.
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
butterfly, backstroke, breastroke, freestyle, IM, medley relay, freestyle relay
The four competitive swimming strokes are: front crawl butterfly breathstroke backstroke
You change strokes in the IM, Individual Medley, but it's in a certain order. First you do Butterfly, Then Backstroke, then Breaststroke, and then freestyle. In the IM you have to do the crawl for freestyle but in a freestyle event you can do a different stroke for the whole event, but it's not advised unless you're much faster in another stroke then the crawl.
The four strokes are butterfly, backstroke, breastroke, and freestyle. (freestyle can be about anything but what you will see in the Olympics and in most competitive events is the Australian crawl)
