One at a time, you will be invited to move into the first lane 30 seconds before your start.
30 seconds before you start, as the competitor before you begins, you will be asked to move into lane 2 where your swim will begin.
Each length is 50 metres. To ensure you accurately complete 400m and finish at the exit steps of the pool to the transition area, you are required to swim as follows:
Swim 2 lengths, out and back, in lane 2 and move under the barrier into lane 3 as your turn into your third length
