This Video Speaks For Itself

This video of Sun Yang is an example of excellent swimming technique. When it comes to technique, this is the goal.

His swim stroke is long, smooth & powerful like Alexander Popov‘s (a sprinter!), and his finish is immense.

Just today he qualified fastest for the 1500m Olympic final, and is looking good for Olympic Gold in London.

Worth watching – and replicating! When it comes to swimming for triathletes if you can swim efficiently like this, you will preserve so much energy, and outperform *supposedly* stronger athletes.

I came across the video on this great blog: Southern California Aquatics (SCAQ).
