USA Leah Smith 800 m heat

Post by cottmiler on Fri Jul 28, 2017 12:43 pm

Just watched L S swim her 800 m heat at FINA in 8:21.?.

Straight arm entry both sides like Janet Evans.  

Basically a 2 beat kick, just streamlining the legs.

To be admired.

This is old but you will see a little bit of swimming plus a team mate you might know.

Nice agressive recovery driven by a full body style.
Very much on the rough and powerfull stroke style spectrum.
The opposite of the sensitive and refined, almost fragile Kapas

Another swim genius in my view. briljant stroke, using everything she can do with her body.

I have not found good closeup shots of Leah swimming. She might have learnt to swim in the sea from what I gather.

Ledecky also learnt to swim in the sea. She is still proud she can show her sighting skills every stroke.




at 50 sec a good slomo shot of her recovery. very relaxed upperarm and hand. Whole recovery in the scapular plane.
