Not sure you guys got the joke, but its cool i now know how to say breatstroke in four languages instead of 2.
What are the other strokes called? Anything amusing?

Finnish swimming terminology can be found at http://www.marjaniemenuimarit.fi/en/index2.html
Nothing amusing in there though.

Is it in every language so that the stroke 'Butterfly' has to do something with that tiny insect?

In holland for example "Vlinderslag" means indeed Butterfly-stroke

Posted by Saku on May 9, 2004 - 09:13 CET
in Germany "Schmetterling" yes the little insect and in Fínnish "perhosuinti" also the insect...well it means something like butterflyswimming .

The Dutch dictionary:

Vlinderslag = Butterfly
Rugslag = Backstroke
Schoolslag = Breaststroke
Vrije slag = Freestyle
Wisselslag = Medley
