Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation awarded its Work the Dream Grant to long-time American national open water swimming team member Eva Fabian who is currently working and living in Manhattan, New York.

Fabian writes, “I am incredibly thankful to the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation for the Work the Dream grant, and for all of the amazing opportunities the grant afforded has me. The Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation is unique in its support of athletes and their dreams. In addition to providing invaluable financial support to athletes hoping to continue their careers, the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation is a committed leader in advocating for athlete safety, and for continuing to honor Fran’s legacy in the sport of swimming.

I had the honor of competing alongside Fran on many USA teams, and my life is forever richer for having known him.

The Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation awards grants to athletes that honor Fran’s legacy; athletes who embody his leadership skills and passion for helping others to be their best. By doing so, the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation embodies these very same qualities as an organization. Thank you Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation, for your commitment to athletes, and for being an advocate for safety in sport at all levels of competition.

Thank you for providing me with the means to pursue my career goals, and for honoring me with the Work the Dream grant in Fran’s memory

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.
