1-2 USA Déjà Vu With Haley Anderson And Ashley Twichell

Courtesy of USA Swimming, Castaic Lake, California.

Of the top 20 finishers, 12 women were foreign visitors to this past weekend's USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championships at Castaic Lake in Southern California.

But the race also solidified the dominance of Haley Anderson and Ashley Twichell among the American women.

While Anderson swam strategically and sprinted well to beat a pair of top Italians in Sunday's 5 km race (Rachele Bruni and Arianna Bridi), Twichell swam exceedingly strong in last Friday's 10 km race over second-place Anderson. The pair will go on to Hungary this summer to represent the USA in the 2017 FINA World Championships. They will not only face each other again for the innumerable time in their pool and open water swimming career, but will also be able to see where they stand among the world's best in Lake Balaton.

On the domestic side, Anderson's Trojan Swim Club teammate Becca Mann finished as the third American in both the 5 km and 10 km races. In both events, Mann was in the lead pack and just barely missed out on capturing a spot in the world championship 5 km and 10 km races - leaving her the option to represent her home country in the 25 km.

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...
