Purpose: the development of modern morpho-functional models of sportsmen of high qualification who specialize in swimming in way butterfly stroke at distances of various lengths.

Material & Methods: the analysis of scientifically-methodical literature, timekeeping, measurement of morpho-functional indicators with application of private techniques, methods of mathematical statistics. The contingent of the investigated was made by sportsmen who specialized in distances of 50, 100 and 200 meters in way butterfly stroke and had the level of sports qualification: MSU, MSIC.

Results: it is established that the morpho-functional profile of the sportsmen specializing in swimming in way butterfly stroke at distances of various length has the features; model morpho-functional characteristics of sportsmen, who act in swimming in way butterfly stroke at distances of 50, 100 and 200 meters, are developed.

Conclusions: the definition of compliance of individual characteristics of the sportsman to the morpho-functional status will allow choosing correctly remote specialization of the swimmer, to open his potential opportunities most fully.
