Kristof Rasovszky Wins FINA World Cup In Qiandao Lake

The camera work was critical at the last FINA/HOSA 10km Marathon Swimming World Cup race held in China's Chun'an Qiandao Lake on October 15th.

Both the winners of the men's and women's race - Kristof Rasovszky of Hungary and Ana Marcela Cunha - finished in the same time as the second-place swimmers - Allan do Carmo and Arianna Bridi - but with the use of the high-speed camera, the FINA race officials judged the Hungarian and Brazilian won their respective races.

"It was a very good but hard race. I was really happy with my result," said Rasovszky. "I tried to be at the first position in the first three laps and tried to beat Do Carmo at the end. In fact, I was always bad at the finish because of the bad position at the last 300, 400 meters. But today I was at the good position and won it. I like Qiandao Lake very much for the water and good temperature."

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.
