Jordan Wilimovsky, Ferry Weertman Swim For 10K Title

Over the first two days of open water swimming events at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Lake Balaton, France has earned 2 gold medals, Italy has 1 silver and 1 bronze, Ecuador has 1 silver, Brazil has 1 bronze, and Great Britain has 1 bronze.

Surprisingly, the Dutch and American swimmers have been shut out of podium positions. But with the men's 10 km race coming up, open water swimming fans will be treated to one of the most anticipated showdowns at the Championships between reigning world champion Jordan Wilimovsky of the USA and Olympic gold medalist Ferry Weertman of the Netherlands. The rivals are primed to put their stamp on the Lake Balaton events, but it is anticipated to be a very fast, very strategic race.

The American and Dutchman placed 1-2 in the 10 km world championship race in Kazan, Russia at the 2015 FINA World Swimming Championships - and they very well come end up on top of the podium again in Lake Balaton on Tuesday.

The pair will have a slight advantage in the 10 km marathon swim over many of their competitors who competed in Saturday's 5 km race: France's Marc-Antoine Olivier (who finished 1st), Russia's Kirill Abrosimov (4th), Brazil's Fernando Ponte (5th), Hungary's Kristof Rasovszky (7th), Kazakhstan's Vitaliy Khudyakov (9th), South Africa's Chad Ho (11th), Poland's Krzysztof Pielowski (12th), Egypt's Marwan Ahmed Aly Morsy Elamrawy (18th), Bulgaria's Ventsislav Aydarski (20th), Venezuela's Johndry Segovia (21st), Ecuador's Ivan Enderica Ochoa (24th), Ukraine's Igor Chervynskiy (29th), Greece's Georgios Arniakos (29th), Serbia's Tamas Farkas (30th), Japan's Yasunari Hirai (33rd), Czech Republic's Matej Kozubek (36th), Greece's Asterios Dalgoiannis (37th), Austria's David Brandl (38th), Ukraine's Igor Snitko (39th), Czech Republic's Vit Ingeduld (41st), Venezuela's Juan Jose Segovia Ramos (43rd), Tunisia's Haythem Abdelkhalek (45th), Mexico's Fernando Betanzos (46th), Angola's Pedro Pinotes (47th), Bolivia's Caballero Rodrigo (48th), Hong Kong's Chin Ting Keith Sin (50th), Serbia's Bence Balzam (53rd), Slovakia's Peter Gutyan (54th), Estonia's Frank Johan Ojarand (55th), Guatemala's Emilio Avila (56th), Bolivia's Zedheir Torrez (58t), Tsz Fung Tse (60th), and Costa Rica's Cristofer Lanuza (61st).

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 tide is rising for open water swimming.
