Singaporeans To Challenge Themselves To The Limit

The inaugural Liberty Wave Open Water Swim will be held in Singapore.

Liberty Insurance has been getting actively involved in the sponsorship and organization of the emerging sport in Singapore.

Chang Sucheng, Liberty Insurance's Chief Executive Officer said, "Singaporeans love a challenge and we believe that open water swimming is a new and exciting sport that will challenge them to their limits."

"It is always great to see national governing bodies work with private companies to enable events like the Liberty Wave offer open water swimming opportunities to all levels," said Steven Munatones.

"Based on events like this, a strong foundation for the future is set.

With short introductory races for children and longer and more competitive races for emerging swimmers like Benedict Boon, the sport of open water swimming in Singapore is well-positioned to develop on the local and international level. When athletes, coaches, parents, officials and administrators can raise their level of awareness, education and motivation, the entire open water swimming community is improved."

The Liberty Wave is a 3-day event with races, clinics and seminars, sanctioned by the Singapore Swimming Association, between September 29th and October 1st. The races include a 300m children's race, 1 km, 2 km, 4 km, and 4 x 1 km relay.

Liberty Wave, held at Casuarina Grove in East Coast Park, is open to both domestic and international swimmers who can register at www.libertywave.sg.

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.
