Red Card Turns Into Red Carpet For Thomas Lurz

Thomas Lurz was confirmed as the overall series champion for the 2013 FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup.

After uncharacteristically getting disqualified in the first race of the season, he certainly made up for the red card. Lurz was not happy after receiving the red card in Santos, Brazil to kick-off the 2013 season in January. But the German superstar quickly made up for lost time.

He steamrolled to an unprecedented 4 open water swimming medals at the FINA World Championships and culminated his season with another World Cup series championship. This year, a total of 304 swimmers (181 men and 123 women) from 35 countries took part in the FINA 10km Marathon Swimming World Cup, but no one turned a red card over like Lurz did.

Only the top 6 swimmers qualified for the final rankings. Qualification requires a minimum number of races, but with travel expenses often greater than the possible prize money, many athletes are selective in their choices of races.

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...

The tide is rising for open water swimming.
