This could be the last turn buoy of the Olympic final or a national championship or a local ocean or lake race.

There is a leader and three swimmers following? You really want to win.

What would you do if you were Swimmer A (leader)? What would you do if you were Swimmer B (second tier, outside swimmer)? What would you do if you were Swimmer C (second tier, middle swimmer)? What would you do if you were Swimmer D (second tier, inside swimmer)?

Scenario A: There are 250 meters to go to the finish in a straight line in calm conditions after this 90º turn.
Scenario B: There are 50 meters to go to the finish in a straight line in rough water conditions after this 90º turn.
Scenario C: There are 500 meters to go to the finish with large waves after this 45º turn.
