NOTE: Super Slow Motion starts 34 seconds into the video.

SwimSwam Swimming News reported by Braden Keith.

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.

There’s an underwater camera around the 12m mark. Any chance of getting hold of that footage?
