The video above was captured by the Lundie brothers and company from Takeitlive.
They’re stalwart players in the swim scene, always there capturing the video stream for USA Swimming at Grand Prix competitions, Nationals, Junior Nationals, etc. The video above was captured at the 2013 Santa Clara International Grand Prix.
Many thanks to the Lundie’s for producing this swimming video…in super slow motion.
For age grouper swimmers and masters swimmers, this is exceptional footage of the best athletes on the planet doing streamline dolphin kicks, breakouts, and flip turns.
See if you can find your favorite swimmer. Matt Grevers, Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte and more are all in this swimming video.
For more visual fun, checkout the Lundie brother’s capture of a super slow motion finish in the men’s 50 freestyle.
This finish looked closer than it was, as American Nathan Adrian was right on his season best with a 21.76 to win this 50 free. Brazilian World Record holder Cesar Cielo was 2nd in 22.04, and Anthony Ervin was 3rd in 22.07.
Cielo, who has the most-watched knee in swimming right now, looked a little better off the start than he did at the Arizona Invitational last weekend, though he was still clearly nowhere near where Adrian was. The outcome was about the same for the Brazilian who had knee surgery in the fall.
Olympic silver medalist Cullen Jones took 4th in 22.41, and Tyler McGill was 5th in 22.64. McGill is focused wholly on the 100 fly this summer, but could be a darkhorse if he decides to swim this 50 free at Worlds Trials.
Of note, Matt Grevers swam a 23.91 in the B-Final butterfly. By comparison, Cielo, the defending World Champion was a 23.5 split in his 100 fly in prelims on Friday (before warming down the second 50 meters in freestyle.)
