Swimmers:  If you’re trying to learn good technique from a video, would you rather see the technique demonstrated by a good swimmer who is your peer, age-wise… or by an elite-level swimmer who is not necessarily the same age as you?

Coaches:  If you’re trying to teach good technique to a swimmer, do you think you’d get better results by showing footage of an elite-level swimmer… or footage of a good swimmer in the same age group as the "student?"
