Jazz Carlin Has Big Goals For Tokyo

Courtesy of FINA.

Double Olympic silver medalist Jazz Carlin from Great Britain is training to replicate the 2012 Olympic success of Oussama Mellouli in both pool and open water.

The British freestyler is considering racing in the new women's 1500m event and the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Carlin recently raced in her first 10 km event against world-class athletes.

At the recent FINA/HOSA 10km Marathon Swimming World Cup race held in China's Qiandao Lake on October 15th, she finished 11th.

Similar to the 2016 men's 1500m gold medalist Gregorio Paltrinieri of Italy who is also entering the world of open water swimming in the 2020 Olympic quadrennial, 2016 400m and 800m silver medalist Carlin has the speed and stamina to double up in both the pool and open water.

"The water in Odaiba Marine Park at the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be as flat as a pool without currents or waves or marine life," says Steven Munatones. "These kinds of calm conditions gives the world's fastest swimmers with lesser open water swimming experiences an ideal venue to compete for medals." The race is on - with a whole lot of hard training scheduled.

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.
