Swimming mainly rely on the arm, thigh and waist strength, which is responsible for movement of the muscles are mainly located in the big arm big arm and shoulder. Regular exercise these muscles can make thicker muscle fibers, so the wider at the shoulders.

I wonder if you noticed that in fact the project main attack athletes are different stature will be different. Most long-distance freestyle athletes tall slim slender, while the short-range projects (especially the butterfly) athletes are very sturdy. This is their training intensity and training of individuals.

Just looking at shoulder width and do not explain the problem, after all, swimming level is determined by many factors. But often can indeed swim posture correction, an increase of the muscles, enhance physical fitness.
