verb - Elbowing is to purposefully throw one's elbow towards the body of another swimmer during an open water swimming competition. It is grounds for a warning with a yellow card (or yellow flag) or a disqualification with a red card (or red flag). Elbowing is to push with the elbow or jostle to make (one's way) through the aquatic scrum, and is one common example of physicality in open water swimming.

The swimmer was given a red card for elbowing around the turn buoy.
