Trent Grimsey Leads The Changing Of Guard

The long reign of the incomparable Petar Stoychev is over on the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix.

With Stoychev's decision to focus on the Olympics, the vacuum created was filled by Australia's Trent Grimsey who dominated the 68 men who competed on the Grand Prix circuit in 2012. As Stoychev plans to move into other areas of the sport, the future seems bright for Grimsey to begin his own reign over the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix.

The final results:

1. Trent GRIMSEY AUS 95 points
2. Damián BLAUM ARG 71
3. Andrea VOLPINI ITA 45
3. Evgenij POP ACEV MKD 45
5. Edoardo STOCHINOITA 37

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...
