Comments: Great clip with quality video and great explanations of why head position
is so important while breathing. It is long, but watch the whole thing and you
will see at least one problem that you have with your breathing. Also, the swimmer
(Matt) has really great technique - watch his arms for examples of great straight-ahead
recovery, entry, extension, and the early-vertical-forearm catch and pull. And
notice the really nice six-beat kick. Rotation. Head position. Everything is great.

with Michael Phelps, Katie Hoff, & Bob Bowman Comments: Shorter version
of the above from an Olympic coach. Note that Coach Bowman mentions that Katie
Hoff - one of the best & fastest swimmers in the world - needs to work on
her breathing. Think you should work a bit on yours?
