Whatta Race In Miami - Swim Miami's 10K

There was plenty of bright sunny skies, warm water and tough competition - among all age groups - in the Swim Miami that was streamed live from Miami, Florida.

With water temperatures of 24°C (75.2°F), there were a great mixture of many NCAA swimmers and young age-group swimmers in the venue, especially in 10K race.

In the men's 10K, there was a great five-man race that resulted in an extremely close victory of Harry Stephenson over Canada's Xavier Desharnais by the ever slightest of margins. The official times were the same down to the hundredth of a second, but the nod was given to the 18-year-old from Florida.

1. Harry Stephenson (18) 2:05:49
2. Xavier Desharnais (21) 2:05:49
3. Ricardo Monasterio Davie (32) 2:05:51
4. Max Fabian (19) 2:06:00 (shown above)
5. Eric Nilsson (23) 2:06:17

World 5K champion Eva Fabian flew south for the event and dominated the women's side in her preparations for next month's all-important USA Swimming selection 10K race where only two Americans will be chosen to represent their country with the hopes of continuing on to the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim at the 2012 London Olympics.

1. Eva Fabian (17) 2:11:35 (shown above)
2. Claire Thompson (22) 2:13:22
3. Gillian Ryan (15) 2:19:17
4. Caitlin Nolan (21) 2:23:40

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
