Thomas Lurz Close To Wrapping Up 2nd FINA Series

Thomas Lurz has trained for and enjoyed an extremely successful year with 4 medals at the 2013 FINA World Championships. But he wants more and there is seemingly no slowing down the German juggernaut.

Lurz is traveling to China for the last two legs on the FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup professional circuit in Shantou, China and Hong Kong. The Shantou leg is this coming Saturday, September 29th and the Hong Kong leg is on October 5th.

Lurz holds a commanding lead with 72 points over his closest rivals Romain Beraud of France with 52 points and Allan Do Carmo of Brazil with 48 points and looks to be close to wrapping up his second FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup series title. He won his first World Cup series title in 2011.

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...
