A master at work. On a totally different level than a desperate race for the line in the last lap of an Olympic final.

I can only describe it as swimming like you REALLY mean it.
It tells of all the 10's of 1000's of hours of work that went into it.

Superficially it looks a very physical style but I think there is a lot of science in it and use of a redirection of momentum. Under water would tell the whole story. It looks like when a master musician closes his eyes and lets himself go and a masterpiece just pours out.
