    Hi Gary,

    What is the benefit of uneven strokes, where the left side stroke is different from the right side. I see 2 two Olympic Gold Medalists do this completely differently .

    1) In a Speedo promotional video to go sub 20 sec in a 50, Caeleb Dressel’s freestyle hands enter the water with a bend in the wrist. What is interesting is the difference between left and right hand. His right wrist continues bent through the entry and full lift phase. Where as his left hand straightens out to align to his arm after entering with a bent wrist.

    2) Penny Oleksiak Rio Gold Medal 100M performance. The last 25M she starts galloping.
