Swim Fingers

The fastest swimmers make webbed hands out of water



Web fingers attach to a swimmer's hands - swimming add-ons

Take a good look at the hands of competitive swimmers - chances are, their fingers will be slightly spread. New research finds that this hand position creates an "invisible web" of water that gives swimmers more speed.

"It is a counterintuitive idea, the fact that you should paddle with a fork, not with an oar," said researcher Adrian Bejan, professor of mechanical engineering at Duke University.

Bejan and his colleagues found that interactions between the hand and the water when the fingers are slightly spread increase the total force a swimmer can exert, translating to faster times in the pool.
