Alexander Popov - Alexander Popov Freestyle Stroke Technique
The swimmer in this video is Alexander Popov, the great freestyle sprinter. This tape is run in slow motion so you can really see how deep and smooth his pull pattern is. Notice the triangle elbow position that keeps his hands deep, but does not let them cross over the centerline of his body. Also, like the previous swimmers, his head position is solid. Like martizaCorriea, he swims in this sample with a smooth 6 beat kick.
