Who's Who And Wetsuits At USA Swimming Championships

Courtesy of USA Swimming, Castaic Lake, California.

When the men's USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championships scheduled for 11 am on May 19th and the women's race scheduled for 1:30 pm, most eyes of the Americans, Australians, Canadians, British, Malaysian, Italian and Tunisian swimmers and coaches are on the water temperature that is bordering at 68°F (20°C) - the exact temperature at which wetsuits are optional for the swimmers.

With a few more days of Californian sunshine and warmth expected to heat up Castaic Lake, the water temperature will most likely crack the 20°C limit - and save the swimmers from having to decide whether or not to wear a wetsuit.

A live webcast of each race will be broadcast at www.usaswimming.org where Olympians and world champions from America (Haley Anderson + Jordan Wilimovsky + Andrew Gemmell + Chip Peterson + Eva Fabian), Australia, Canada (Richard Weinberger), Great Britain (Jack Burnell), Malaysia (Heidi Gan), Italy (Rachele Bruni), and Tunisia (Ous Mellouli) will be battling for the USA Swimming national open water swimming titles in the 10 km on Friday and 5 km on Sunday.

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...
