Great angle of Anthony Ervin swimming a 19.98 in the 50scy free

From Wikipedia:

Anthony Lee Ervin
(born May 26, 1981 in Burbank California is an American swimmer who tied Gary Hall Jr. for the gold medal in the Men’s 50m Freestyle at the 2000 Summer Olympics. He also won a silver medal on the Men’s 4x100m freestyle relay team behind Australia at the Olympics in Sydney, Australia.

Loving that catch and how symmetrical his stroke is. This You Tube video was shot by NEShortYards2007, filmed at the 2007 New England Masters Short Course Yards Championship at Blodgett Pool, Harvard University.

It appears that Harvard, a private university, has no problems with sharing great swims within their pool.
(Thank you very much)

UPDATE: This You Tube link shows Anthony swimming a 50 LCM filmed completely underwater. The very last race has the best angle. He is the swimmer in the middle lane of three. [Link]

19.98 isnt bad with only one-two months of training and not taking a single stroke two weeks before the meet.

Ye-Godz! A 19.98 is astonishing and I am looking for more videos of him too.

Imagine what he could do at trials next year with a great coach.
