Sweet spot breathing is referred to as interrupted breathing in some of the more recent TI materials. We used to start the freestyle training process by having swimmers learn sweet spot, but now we introduce it later as an alternative to taking a regular freestyle breath. And open water swimmers sometimes use it to pause, catch their breath, and rest a bit before proceeding.
