Alex Meyer And Sean Ryan Heading To Shanghai

Harvard University's Alex Meyer and Michigan's Sean Ryan went 1-2 in the 2011 USA Swimming National 10K Open Water Swimming Championships in the rough water conditions of Fort Lauderdale. Fighting currents, waves and whitecaps the entire distance, Alex and Sean put on the all-important push at the very end. They will represent the USA at the 2011 World Swimming Championships with the opportunity to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics.

Alex in particular seemed to catch a wave at the end which gave him a degree of separation from the other men in the top pack including 2008 Olympian Mark Warkentin, 2009 world silver medalist Andrew Gemmell and 2005 world champion Chip Peterson and fast young Arthur Frayler.

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.
