Underwater video of Eamon Sullivan's turnover both in slow motion and real time!
The video quality is sketchy but the value in seeing a turnover like that is inspiring to say the least. I also included what he looks like from above the water. Note where his elbows are in relations to his hands.
Unfortunately, I swim that way too. I feel that Eddie Reese has it right when he says keeping your elbows higher than the hands allows for a faster trajectory back into the water. I am paraphrasing him greatly from the DVD, Eddie Reese on Freestyle, but I feel that geometry backs him up.
