The University of Kansas will host for the second consecutive year the 2nd annual 5 km College Swimming Coaches Association of America National Collegiate Open Water Championships on September 16th in Lone Star Lake.

The Kansas Jayhawks dominated the competition last year when Haley Bishop and Libby Walker tied for first with freshman Jenny Nusbaum took the bronze. All three Jayhawks will return in this year’s race. They will be joined by teammate Lauryn Parrish this time around.

UNC Asheville, Northern Michigan, George Washington, Missouri, St. Louis, Rice, Emmanuel, Albion, Southern Illinois and Richmond have enough participants to compete in the team event. The top three finishers from each team, using cross country scoring, contribute to their team’s scores. The top three teams are honored by the CSCAA, as are the top eight individual finishers.

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...
