Mori Continues Her Hot Streak In The Winter

Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California.

Victoria Mori won her first race of the 2016-2017 International Winter Swimming Association season. She won the Czech Cup Blansko in 5°C water with more than 200 winter swimmers.

"It was my first competition of winter swimming this year. It was a good way to start the winter season. Thanks to my friends and colleagues of winter seasoning for the excellent day. I was happy to be back in the Czech Republic."

Mori finished first in the 1 km winter swim with a 15 minute 11 second victory swim in Blansko; an appropriate start as a follow-up from her dominating performance from her 2016 campaign.

The professional marathon swimmer from Argentina has quite a range: from competing in the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix and FINA/HOSA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup series to winter swimming events all over the world.

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...
