I saw Janet Evans on TV last week on a broadcast of the (?) FINA short course
championships. She was swimming the 800 free, and it looked like
she was switching her kick between a 2 beat and a 6 beat kick: 6 beat kick
after a turn, then switching to a 2 beat kick after about 10-15 yards.
Does this sound correct - it was hard to tell exactly from my TV.
Is this common for competitors in the 800/1500 free?
As far as the two beat kick is concerned, is it hard to learn? I've tried
it for a length or two before, and it seemed ackward. Would it be easier
if my arm turnover was faster? I'm quite slow :-(
