The unique achievement of Australian world championship Coach Ian Pope in his Championship Productions swimming instruction video is to acknowledge and highlight the differences between sprint freestyle technique and championship form in distance swimming. In this amazing video, Pope utilizes two of the great swimmers from Down Under: distance champion and multiple record setter Grant Hackett and sprint champion Matt Targett.
