Rachele Bruni Is Having The Year Of Her Career

While the men will come down to the wire at this year's FINA/HOSA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup circuit over the final two races of the season, Italy's Rachelle Bruni appears to have handily wrapped up the professional marathon swimming circuit.

All she has to do now to capture her first World Cup title is basically show up for the final race and hope that second place swimmer, Anna Olasz of Hungary, does not win the last two races. But that is unlikely with the depth of the field that is heading to China and Hong Kong.

It has been quite a year for Bruni who not only has dominated the 10K World Cup races, but has also qualified for the 2016 Rio Olympics with her fourth place finish at the 2015 FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia.

Current Top 10 Rankings on the FINA/HOSA 10K World Cup circuit:
1 Rachelle Bruni (ITA) 96
2 Anna Olasz (HUN) 70
3 Ana Marcela Da Cunha (BRA) 54
4 Angela Maurer (GER) 40
4 Aurelie Muller (FRA) 40
6 Keri-Anne Payne (GBR) 36
7 Christine Jennings (USA) 34
7 Poliana Okimoto Cintra (BRA) 34
9 Cecilia Biagioli (ARG) 30
10 Isabelle Harle (GER) 29

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...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
