Default Propeller leg crossings

Very nice; I notice he crosses his legs between his kicks; it looks very compact and powerful, yet at the same time low-drag because the legs "hide behind each other". Is this a correct observation? I'll definitely try to emulate it to see how it feels. Of course his balance is impeccable, which mine is far from!

Yes. The leg crossing is more evident in the video of the 800 meter race. In the head-on shots you can see how much the hips are involved. The 1500 should be very interesting in London but I think they're all going to have a hard time trying to catch Sun. Of course, there is no such thing as a true certainty in sport although Sun is probably as close as you could get.

Here's a longer version of the 800 with a commentary in Italian, which some might understand a bit better than Hungarian. Very impressive swimming by all concerned but especially Kis - the 800 almost as an extended sprint.
