Watch as Swedish Swimmer Sarah Sjostrom crushes the World Record with a 24.43 in the women’s 50 butterfly.
This stroke is comparatively much more shallow, with a higher turnover, but this is similar to what we see from men’s 50 butterfliers as well: the stroke becomes more freestyle-like. Sjostrom’s sprint fly, like her free, is very flat, with virtually no “bounce” to her stroke. Not taking a breath contributes to that, but it makes for a very efficient stroke.
