Default Lance Armstrong video analysis- where did it go?

We have seen many posts on these forums analyzing swimming videos. The video I posted with analysis of Lance Armstrong's stroke is the very best I have yet to see of the kind. I would think all might find it helpful- TI enthusiasts included.

Thanks for posting this video link - I have to admit that watching Lance do just about anything sucks me right in. That said, I feel a little sorry for him being picked apart on the basis of just 10 strokes. Hard to believe there could be 20 + minutes of analysis about that little snippet of swimming. Lastly, one little critique of the critique - I don't think you can say definitively that someone is a unilateral breather from just 10 strokes. I often take 10,20 or 30 strokes, breathing on one side before doing the same on the other side.

But you can tell a lot from just 2 or 3 strokes...

I read an article recently that Lance did a 2.4 mile race in Texas in April of 2011 and knocked out a 49 minutes & 12 seconds, finishing in 3rd place. Many people forget his multi-sport talent prior to being selected by the USCF in 1991. He is a phenomenal swimmer! :-)
