Thanks.

I haven't seen Andy's video otherwise I'd have posted that. I'd really like to see how far he's come.

What I was referring to in my query was the apparent ease of Shinji's stroke. Like you Charles I wonder how long he can keep that up but there is a demo of him open water swimming that looks very similar.

Interesting thought that on his kmost famous video he does 12 strokes for 25m and on this video 9 strokes. They don't look (to me) to be so different. Yet a 33% stroke rate increase must be down to something.

Am I just looking for the Alchemist's Stone of swimming?
