Ledecky

US Olympian Ledecky is simply amazing by her speed and grace. She invented a new style of swimming where you do not kick your feet but has not been officially named yet. She just won the 800m free style only a few minutes ago and shot through the water like a torpedo.
Thanks from Clara007 and Kipper

I learned what was called the dolphin kick, which really wasn't a kick. It was something done with the entire body. It felt cool to do that stroke.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

Ledecky isn't the only one who's using this kick. Amazing!

It hasn't been named yet and is a brand new and improved version of swimming. Her legs don't move and she drags them through the water, her arms pull her through the water like a side wheel paddle steamer.

edit: I swam in the Great Salt Lake once and could have walked to Antelope Island. I tried to swim underwater but could not and then went and saw Bonneville Salt Flat.
