Power To Swimmers

We have used Swim Power to analyze a large number of open water swimmers and triathletes.

Swim Power analyzes swimming performance and is an easy-to-understand and visual way to educate coaches and athletes of all ages and abilities. "Swim Power educates swimmers and their coaches about their mistakes in swimming and how they can improve their swimming techniques to become faster and more efficient in the water," says inventor Genadijus Sokolovas, Ph.D. of Global Sport.

Michael Phelps said, “You’ve been such a huge help. Couldn't do it without you."

Dara Torres said, "Having Genadijus work with me throughout my comeback helped so much.. The fact that Genadijus took the time to work on even the smallest of things helped me be the best I could be, and reach my goals, and for that I am extremely grateful."

Jason Lezak said, “Throughout my many years of working with Genadijus, he has helped me in many ways. The lactate testing and analysis both at meets and practice taught me how to maximize my training and performance. Also the underwater video analysis with the velocity curve showed me how I could improve my stroke through the weaker points where my velocity significantly dropped.”

Peter Vanderkaay said, “Dr. Sokolovas always uses cutting edge technology that is extremely beneficial in stroke refinement and training philosophy. I have worked with Dr. Sokolovas for many years now and I can honestly say that he has helped me reach my potential in the pool. I would highly recommend working with him if you want to be one of the best swimmers in the world.” Ous Mellouli said, “Working with Dr. G was truly an eye opening experience. With his innovative Underwater video filming and velocity analysis equipment, he helped me detect many defects in my stroke and made great recommendations on how to fix them. I am confident that with his feed back and hard work, I will be a more efficient swimmer.”

Randall Bal said, “I am fully confident to say that with your knowledge, hands on approach, and attention to the finest details any athlete that works with you will have a chance to see what was holding them back from being at the top level in their sport.”

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.
