going further forward in hand position:

Right side


Left side


Her kick has finished, she has just catched the water and the whole pull has to be done without kick support.Thats hard and more arm only action than a combined anchor-kick-spear.
Doing it on a non dominant side makes it even harder.
So in my view, both arms are a bit too patient, a style thats almost exclusively seen in strong male swimmers.
With the left arm she is even more patient, moving out of the normal timing range.
Just deminish the glide time a fraction of a second before going into catch and the problem is solved.
