This week on the blog we're going to do something slightly different and look at the stroke of seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong. Some of you may already have seen the clip of Lance's stroke that appeared on YouTube about ten days ago. The video was taken whilst he swam in the ocean in Kona, Hawaii, the venue for the Ironman World Championship.
