In this video you can see Kevin Cordes (USA: Lane 6) with a really long elegant stroke. It's beautiful to watch.

As I was watching this video, I was reminded of a story Terry once told of practicing with a masters group while he was travelling. At one point, one of the other swimmers approached him and asked "How can you be keeping up with us? You don't seem to be doing anything!" Compared with the other swimmers, Cordes definitely doesn't seem to be doing anything. His stroke is living proof that extending stroke length is as valid in breaststroke as it is in freestyle.

Thanks for sharing!
