Default Murray Rose --TI Pioneer?

I was intrigued to read the following in the Times obit for the great Australian swimmer Murray Rose: "Rose's special signature was... a split-second pause that occurs as he leans on his extended right arm and breathes on his left side, a pause during which he is absolutely relaxed." This may be a poor attempt to describe "front-quadrant" swimming -- if you wait patiently through the talking heads in this Aussie news video (http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2012/s3478720.htm) there are some brief underwater shots of Rose's stroke -- he does stay extended for an extra moment at the end of the stroke, but on both sides, i think, not just one. Plus he had a two-beat kick!
