if anybody is interested in the full left right and right arm slipfactor calculation of the skilfull russian loper. let me know.
During this part of the stroke, he has a negative sliipfactor.

Yes, I'm interested. Today I unintentionally swam some laps with a slight up and down undulation during a usrpt set where I had to swim at my 400m pace. It came naturally when breathing to my less favourite side while trying to hold the same pace I hold when breathing to my favourite side. I found that submerging the head completely for an instant like Phelps does here highlighted that "downhill" feeling I always search and also felt a bit faster (like a sprint finish when you dive underwater and stretch to touch the wall).

By the way, could you also calculate Phelps' slipfactor? :)

Note at about 0:51 in Terry's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC8ZZZhabp4

It seems to be more accentuated in his right arm than the left.
