Libby Lenton-Trickett set the world record today in the 100 LCM Freestyle - Here is that swim!
Note that she looks WAY UP! She does not look down at all! In fact, on the slo-mo replay her first three strokes are so powerful and she is looking up so high that her goggles are almost out of the water.
In 2008, I am seeing a free-for-all in regards to technique. There are no "rules" anymore such as always look down, do not utilize a straight arm recovery, it is all about what works for you, your body and the clock.
