Daniel Fogg Clears Things Up With Victory In Cozumel
The Mexican stage on the pro circuit on the stunning island of Cozumel lived up to its billing. The race gave those who won a great boost going into the upcoming World Swimming Championships in Barcelona. It also gave great feedback to others who did not perform as well as they had hoped - and gave indication to them as to what they need to work on.
The currents swished the athletes here and there. Athletes needed strength, speed, stamina as well as spot-on navigational IQ and a brutal toughness about them - as well as a bit of luck - to finish in the top 10 in Cozumel.
"The currents, conditions, and competition separated the boys from the men, that's for sure," said one of the observers. And Fogg was quite manly about everything in Cozumel

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.
