Chicago Croquet: Creepy Croquet 2001 / 106-0612_IMG

Kristina "Jaws" Maldre attempts a croquet with her highly unusual style of choking up on the mallet. If she bent down any further, her head would be on the ground!

Actually, her step method with her feet is mentioned on Canada's Croquet website:

A further point from Kevin's letter is that the centre of gravity of the player will usually move during a swing. This may not matter provided it remains above the base on which he is standing. Thus a step-stance rather than a level stance is recommended, especially for players with small feet (seriously!) and less body weight, and for everyone when playing strokes such as long rushes, rolls and cannons where real power is required.
