In this video you can see Kevin Cordes (USA: Lane 6) with a really long elegant stroke. It's beautiful to watch.
Indeed pretty incredible gliding /streamline. he achieves the second place with possibly the slowest stroke rate of all 8 swimmers.
one thing he shares with Peaty is the extremely clean "exit" of the water when breathing, I suspect their is a fine technical thing behind it.
