^An excellent recap of the discussion with examples^

Hailey King doing the swim move in a kind of hybrid style of swedish/american. She still turns her head and shoulders toward the target at release a bit, but the left side is definitely resisting. I think you can see in her swing how key the timing of it is with how it all pops just right on this throw.

Timestamped to 13:55 in case it doesn't work. If you slow it down to .25x you really see the move.

See, I'd say the distinction between Swedish and American lies more in the swing planes and momentum being more horizontal vs vertical. Straight arm with a pendulum swing vs deep elbow bend and high swing.

Swedish tends to keep the shoulders more still with the arm out front (like HUB's GG example), but I think even some "American style" throwers do this on occasion, Simon being the one I think of immediately. I think it means they're better stacked behind their brace.

Obviously there's a lot of grey area here because no one is fully one style or the other.
