You travel fastest in competition (and in practices, too) when you first come off the block. Second fastest is the "drive' push off the wall after each turn. If you're wise, you'll take advantage of these energy saving speed bursts.
Laboratory experiments have proven it. A streamlined body travels much faster underwater than on the surface.
