Ivan Puskovitch, Casmera Wick Win Race #1 In Schuykill

Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California.

John Kenny kicked off his second season of the Upper Merion Open Water Swim Series in the Schuylkill River in Pennsylvania.

"Race #1 went off on Tuesday night. Although thunderstorms were in the forecast, the weather stayed clear and the race went off at 7 pm as planned. River temperature was a balmy 76°F (24°C); most racers elected to forego their wetsuits with all 67 swimmers finishing."

Kenny is happy with the improvements in the swimmers and triathletes participating in the 6-race weekday evening series. "Not only were there more participants, but those who raced were quite a bit faster than we've seen in previous years. 12 swimmers broke 12 minutes for the 800-meter swim. The overall men's winner was 14-year-old Ivan Puskovitch from Episcopal Academy. The overall female winner was Casmera Wick, a swim coach at Villanova University."

The next race is scheduled for 7 pm on June 9th. For more information, visit here.

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...
