I have the strong impression that the commentator doesn't know what he's talking about and is probably reading from something handed to him. Apart from not being able to pronounce latissimus dorsi, surely he should describe the catch as the phase after the reach? Magnussen's stroke looks very orthodox to me, and I greatly doubt whether his biceps muscles are any bigger or stronger than anybody else's at his level. He does seem to have the ability to swim the second 50 very fast, though, which is definitely a strong point and his turn is obviously very good as the man said.
