Video modelling is an effective non-physical training method in improving athletic performance (Hodges & Williams, 2007: Journal of Sports Sciences, 25, 495–496). However, information regarding its impact on disabled athletes’ performance is lacking. With particular reference to disability swimming, where time devoted to physical training is officially restricted based on the swimmer’s disability classification, the impact of non-physical training methods such as video modelling could be crucial. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the effect of video modelling on disabled swimmers’ performance.
