Rachele Bruni Looking For Déjà Vu In Rio
It was another great race between three pre-race Olympic medal favorites today in Balatonfüred - Kikötő, Hungary.
Italian Rachele Bruni, German Isabelle Härle, and American Haley Anderson went head-to-head on the third leg of the FINA/HOSA 10 km Marathon Swimming World Cup in Lake Balaton today.
Other Olympians were also in the race including Ana Marcela Cunha (BRA), Poliana Okimoto Cintra (BRA), Éva Risztov (HUN), and Joanna Zachoszcz (POL).
“I came fourth last year now I managed to win and this makes me really satisfied,” Bruni said. ”Here I raced against six or seven girls who will also be present in Rio so I could meet with some of my greatest rivals, this is also really important. And it was an honor to race against Eva Risztov, the Olympic champion at her home and to finish ahead of her is a huge accomplishment for me, though I know she had everything to retain her title in Rio.”

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.

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...
