Ryan Lochte learned the hard way in the 400 IM that there is no 'glide phase' to a Michael Phelps turn!

When Michael Phelps makes a turn, he is kicking as soon as his feet leave the wall. Here is a link to a You Tube of Phelps showing how it's done: [Link]

Also, see his start here and note how he is looking up rather than looking down during his freestyle. This is definitely not the total immersion school here: [Link]
