yo, from the article, it says, "So Lochte tries to streamline underwater for at least 15 meters off each flip turn." Is that possible? that would be like doing over half of the UBC indoor pool length underwater after each flip turn

For pro swimmers its possible, however, I try usually to get at least 5 meters, in a race I may do 7 but I'm not good enough to get any further.

Pro swimmers go much faster underwater, so there is actually a rule saying you have to take your first stroke by X meters.
