I will take a look at the other distances.
I always count stroke as if the swimmer would touch the wall lIke in an open turn.
Then she would take 1 extra stroke.

Hope there is coming acceptable footage quality at youtube. Only good quality is from london 2012.

Found some footage from Ledecky doing 500 yards

Cant see any super good technique that can explain the difference between other world champion calibre elites.
Nobody would think of talking about her technique if she was not winning medals.

Stuart, dont you agree that the loping that she does makes it possible to lower the avarage head position? The head position is only high when she takes a breath. The rest of the time its lower than normal breathing height.
