Default Amaury Leveaux 100m SC WR

It's nice to watch a top spriinter in action and marvel at his skill and speed

Default under water

It seems to me that he wins the race during the loooong under water portions of the race (seems like almost half the pool length), when he comes off the turns; during the actual stroking he is not pulling away.
Also nice to see a bit of a glide during his stroke.
Because of the long underwater portions he takes by far the fewest strokes of any of the swimmers in the pool. If my counting is correct:
Lane 1: 9-10 strokes (hard to count, many angle changes)
Lane 2: 10 strokes
Lane 3: 12 strokes
Lane 4: 15-16 strokes
Andreas.

What is RT? Which final position does each lane represent?

Hi Shuumai

RT is reaction time.

I think Ikarus47 means length when he writes lane 1 2, 3 4 etc.

Too bad the video is no longer available.
