Looking Forward To The Next Olympics

After the 2012 London Olympic Games, each country's coaches and administrators take stock of the results and then plan again for the next Olympic quadrennial.

While Tunisia (Ous Mellouli, gold), Germany (Thomas Lurz, silver), Canada (Richard Weinberger, bronze), Hungary (Eva Risztov, gold), USA (Haley Anderson, silver), and Italy (Martina Grimaldi, bronze) can build from podium finishes, many other countries are going to re-stock and rebuild.

Hungary looks well-prepared for 2016 with Risztov and Anna Olasz as does the young and emerging German team with its brilliant dominance at the 2012 World Junior Open Water Swimming Championships.

The USA team will also be very dangerous over the next Olympic quadrennial with a young team with significant upside:

Ashley Twichell coached by Bill Rose
Haley Anderson coached by Dave Salo
Christine Jennings coached by Grant Holicky
Eva Fabian coached by Jack Fabian
Tristin Baxter coached by Dorsey Tierney-Walker
Gillian Ryan coached by Bob Bowman

Alex Meyer coached by Tim Murphy
Andrew Gemmell coached by Jack Bauerle and Bruce Gemmell
Janardan Burns coached by Tyler Fenwick
David Heron coached by Tyler Fenwick
Joey Pedraza coached by Gregg Troy
Arthur Frayler coached by Richard Shoulberg

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...
