Mann, Anderson, Twichell Prove To Be Crème De La Crème
The top 3 athletes on the podium remained the same in the women's 5 km and 10 km at the USA Swimming Open Water National Championships: Haley Anderson, Ashley Twichell, and Becca Mann.

Becca Mann finished first in the 10 km and third in the 5 km. Haley Anderson finished first in the 5 km and second in the 5 km. Ashley Twichell finished third in the 10 km and second in the 5 km. The trio proved to be the crème de la crème in Fort Myers, Florida at this year's championships.

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.
