Default A pleasant looking TI stroke.

No crazy high elbows or other special technical attributes, (except those flexible ankles) but just moving very fluid and relaxed through the water.
I especially like how she rolls from side to side and how the armpull connects with the bodyroll.
For the visual learners looking for a relaxed stroke.

Too much! ha ha
Its funny that looking at videos also becomes sort of a skill after a while.
And because your own swimming and focal points change you notice different things
when watching the same footage a year later.
Its a sport to try to mentally swim along. With some swimmers its easy , others are hard to understand and mimic mentally.
Seeing more and more faults, in my own swimming and in others.
When swimming along its sometimes damn, I must be doing that too, other times Ok, thats also pretty much how it feels to me.
Its all imaginary, but I think its usefull.
Really good swimmers are very rare. She moves very well.
Only negative is that legs are a bit low. OOps being too critical again ;-)

I agree, there's often something unique to be seen in a video

Roy Burch - probably around the 20th fastest 50m swimmer in the world but see how he is very feel for the water focused in his swimming

Also I notice the use of the hand in the follow through in a more flipper like way than I would have thought before. seems logical.

Looks like King Kong gently handling the woman.
Always weird to see extreme sprinters swim at a slow rate.

Here a guy with an interesting kick

She is very smooth . Looks like she is almost swimming with a borderline catch up stroke .It looks like her pull begins just after the other hand enters.

zt or anyone

What do you estimate her stroke rate to be in this clip? Seems as if she get a whole lot of distance in each stroke

So smooth. Thanks for posting that link. I can really appreciate how much momentum she has between pulls. I don't feel that in my stroke. I feel I slow down too much. I have much more drag I suppose.
