Default Videos of actual TI technique in triathlon

Aside from the brief footage of Terry swimming in a triathlon, I haven't found anything else on Youtube of other TI coaches or disciples utilizing TI technique in a triathlon.

I'm very interested to see it 'live' so to speak. Most of the other open water videos show TI swimmers swimming together in a gentle fashion which looks amazing but in a triathlon, there's alot of choppy water and choppy swimmers around you.

If you can send me some links, it'd be very educational!

Hi drtse.
There's some nice footage of Terry in a World Masters Championship from 3.35.

Plenty of chop in that clip. And what you'll see is that--while everyone else in my vicinity is clearly flailing--we swim the same in chop as we do in the pool. The stroke is hardwired.

I've swum in plenty of open water races, but never have a kayaker with a spare passenger to take video of my stroke. I am pretty sure it looks a lot like my stroke in a pool when swimming the same pace. Because that's what it feels like, even with chop.
