Also nice to see a bit of a glide during his stroke.
Because of the long underwater portions he takes by far the fewest strokes of any of the swimmers in the pool. If my counting is correct:
Lane 1: 9-10 strokes (hard to count, many angle changes)
Lane 2: 10 strokes
Lane 3: 12 strokes
Lane 4: 15-16 strokes
What is RT? Which final position does each lane represent?
