La Patagones Viedma 2012 Results
During a year she is taking time off from Yale University, she is making up some good air mileage and training mileage in the hopes that she makes the USA Olympic team.
She improved upon last year's extremely close third-place finish in Viedma when she won by a comfortable 8-second victory over American teammate Haley Anderson. Eva pulled away from a strong field with 600 meters to go followed by Haley who was followed by a tight pack of Nadine Reichert, Angela Mauer and Ana Marcela Cunha.
On the men's side Spyridon Gianniotis is now two-for-two in his Olympic year campaign against the top professional marathon swimmers in the world on the 2012 World Cup circuit. Like his victory in Santos, Brazil last week, this victory also came down to a sprint.
This time, the cagey veteran from Greece out-dueled young Richard Weinberger done the final stretch. Richard's second-place finish followed up on his earlier victory on Thursday's 1.6K Negro River Sprint race.

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 SwimmingAn 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...
