Becca Mann, Haley Anderson Go 1-2 At Nationals
The pace could not have been faster over the last 1 km, but it was Becca Mann who came out on top as she touched out Haley Anderson to win the 2015 USA Swimming Open Water National Championships.
Ashley Twichell and Emily Brunemann followed in third and fourth respectively.
She talks about her strategy. "That was not my strategy. I wanted to stay in the top pack for the first 2 loops. But I was trying to keep up on my own.
I was not trying to think about it. I just tried to go. I was pretty happy as it turns out. I had a little let to go. Around the last turn buoy, I had a little bit left. I am super excited. I always like Worlds [Championships]. I am already there for the pool team, so I will be at there [at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan, Russia] for about a month."

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 SwimmingAn 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...
