Strokes per minute
noun - Strokes per minute (or stroke count or SPM) is the number of arm strokes that an open water swimmer takes in 60 seconds. This information is relayed to the swimmer during or after a swim or race as an indication of his pace. The stroke count is given by 2-digit number such as 60 SPM and is usually relayed by the coach on an escort boat to the swimmer by a whiteboard.
The coach told the channel swimmer her strokes per minute every hour.
