In FS she is amost using straignt arm with short moment arm(distance from wrist to shoulder), this is exactly what I have been imitating, Samuel Pampana(masters 40-44 age group's long distance events' world rrecord holder that I met in Hungary was using the same technique)

She has a great throw- reach - anchor.
followed with a symmetric high elbow position lopers only achieve on one side.
rest of the body follows stable and aligned. its like a front wheel drive car plowing through snow.

Thank you Salvo for bringing those clips to our attention! 

 I jotted down Karlyn's 20 or so tips for FS - very interesting!  As well as the "Take a glide" comment, (think there is a wee bit to be gained by gliding for a very short instant, because the body is in a stream-lined attitude - IMO the moment one starts the down-sweep to a catch there is a wedge of water being pushed in front of the lowering arm, definitely non-propulsive!

 - there were some other thought provoking tips, like : -

 "Gently rock the shoulders, try not to roll". Which ties up with the idea that the faster you move, the better defined is the bow-wave, so it doesn't need much body roll to inhale safely!

  "It's true... you don't need to finish your stroke" That tip ties up with what member "400im" said on the old SS forum - his idea was that the waning propulsion gained from the arm stroke as it is finishing the up-sweep, preparatory to exit - can be put to better use by "prematurely" exiting the water, recovering the arm, and getting into the next propulsive pull a.s.a.p.


"Hold the glide, especially when you breathe" I found this more controversial, 'cos I try in my fastest (! Rolling Eyes ) FS "variant" to avoid any glide, and keep the arms always on the move (even though the down-sweep to a catch is a bit slower than the other phases!).   I suppose Karlyn's tip ties in with the the more recent FS idea of starting the inhalation earlier, than the old "up-sweep inhalation start" idea.  Possibly starting inhalation during the down-sweep to the catch or the very early part of the "pull" phase (this works against the usual body roll mantra  of "roll towards the arm going down..." etc,).  I only managed to do it by using an "arm catch-up" style of FS, with lots of gliding - so personally, I would give that "tip" the "thumbs down"!
