Alexander is a very tall guy which makes it easy to swim (same as Michael Phelps), however, his technique is what sets him apart. Watching him swim is just such a pleasure as he seems to be in this relaxed zen state of composure.
Alexander Popov up close and personal only for you. When watching pay attention to his head position, body rotation, high elbow recovery, his high early vertical arm (catch) and just overall great freestyle swimming form.
