Drafting of 2 swimmers


Open water swimming is a very tactical sport. As in cycling, competitors often swim in peloton formations. Therefore, their position in the group is crucial to optimize drafting, either to preserve their physical strength, to quickly pass a lead swimmer or to impede the passing of an opponent. This work is an experimental study of the drag on 2 swimmers scaled models.
