Watched the whole thing. Little info in a lot of time, but the info is all pretty logical and straightforward.

Now some facts about elites anchoring in the water. measured a guy with a 6BK and very good traction for slippage during his effective armpull.







And counted the position of head and hand by the seperate red floaters of the line.

............... Hand..........Head...........Handslip............. ...Head forward movement
Start .........13.............9.5

Mid.............10.............13............13-10=3.........13-9.5=3.5 start to mid

End............6.5............17.5..........10-6.5=3.5......17.5-13=4.5 mid-end

So he moves forward a bit more than the hand slips backward.
A rough guide for good swimmers is that slippage of hand is the same as the amount the body moves forward.
The avarage swimmer slips twice the amount the body is moving forward.
Real anchoring is a fairytail, but the elite anchors a lot better then the avarage swimmer for sure.

Now check Sun Yangs traction from the same base footage.....
