Maratón Acuática Internacional Santa Fe – Coronda Field Announced

As is traditional, the 2012 FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix starts up in Argentina with a trio of professional marathon swims in Rosario, Santa Fe-Coronda and Hernandarias-Parana.

The pro circuit then shifts to Capri-Napoli in Italy, Lac St-Jean and Lac Memphremagog in Canada, Sabac in Serbia and Ohrid Lake in Macedonia.

World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year Pilar Geijo will attempt to defend her Grand Prix title, but with the absence of Petar Stoychev, the 11-time defending FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix champion, the race among the world's fastest professional marathon swimmers is wide open.

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.
