I wonder whether it is difficult to adjust stroking technique. I would imagine so; I think Caroline HAS worked on learning to generate speed because it is evident that she made minor yet noticeable improvements in that area. However, since she still hasn't caught up to the speed of the other skaters, I assume that these changes are really hard for her to implement.
