At the deepest point following entry the elbow bends and the hand pushes towards the feet, as the arm straightens underwater the hand presses downwards before sweeping towards the thigh. Arm moving in line with the shoulder. Hand recovery out of the water is close to the thigh with thumbs first and elbow straight as the arm is taken past the head to entry point.
