Dolphin Chain

Think of a gold chain, like the one you’d wear around your neck. It consists of hundreds of tiny identical links; one joined to another. Similarly, the butterfly stroke consists of dozens of matching dolphin links, joined one to another. The key to mastering the stroke of butterfly is to ensure that each dolphin action is of the same size and strength and runs smoothly to the next without hesitation. Your mission is to do just that in every butterfly set this week.


  • Platinum: Mission accomplished
  • Gold: Far more good than bad. 
  • Silver: The more tired I got, the more my Dolphin Chain broke apart. 
  • Bronze: Sadly, my Dolphin Chain is non-existent.
