Gregorio Paltrinieri Wins World University Games Gold

Courtesy of WOWSA, New Taipei City Breeze Canal, Taiwan.

Reigning Olympic 1500m champion Gregorio Paltrinieri recently said, "I've achieved extraordinary results in my life, but I don't stop dreaming."

With the Italian's re-entry into the open water swimming world, he is doing what he says.

This morning in Taipei, he convincingly won the 2017 World University Games (Summer Universiade) in the New Taipei City Breeze Canal.

It seems inevitable that Paltrinieri will continue to dream and push what may be possible both in the pool and open water.

Will he go for a double gold in the 1500m and 10 km marathon swim at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games - especially where the water will be flat and calm and warm at the Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo Bay? With another gold in his hand, it seems so.

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 trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
