You might mention that Breast Stroke takes the largest fraction of the 4 strokes giving the strong breaststroker an advantage if the splits for the other strokes keep the swimmer in contention.

I remember when Ruta Meilutyte swam 100 IM at the s/c World Championships in 2012, Istanbul. Meilutyte was last before the breastroke leg at the 50 meter mark but arguably first after it. 🙂
