Swimmers do, I don't think triathletes do as a general rule

The lady who swims 10k for GB (Cassie Patten?) doesn't use her legs too much. Certainly not compared to the others she's racing.

enjoyed my first sprint tri yesterday at the gym ,,,first up was the swim i mainly did breast stroke with a few front crawl lengths ,it was a good job someone was counting the 38 lengths !happy with the time of 18.53 ,then it was a quick change i was told i had 5 mins but noone was timing this bit ,,netherless i went straight to the bike and did my 20 km in 29.50 mins ,straight to the treadmill and i did a steady 5km in 20.47......waiting the results to be published but was happy with my first try at this ..areas to improve i would say is more swimming on front crawl rather slower breast stroke .and less talking to other people when on the bike!!!
