Fausto Brondo from Paraná, Argentina won the Selectivo on November 25th 2017 to qualified for the 57 Maratón Acuática Internacional Santa Fe – Coronda. "Since last year, I wanted to compete in Santa Fe - Coronda. [But] there was no possibility of entering the [qualification race] last year. This year, I competed with low expectations but luckily I got it right."

It will be his first race of the 57 km river race on the FINA UltraMarathon Swim Series. "I want to enjoy the marathon, if I can finish within the top ten swimmers, that would be the best. It's very hard and I have no idea what I'm going to find. I'm going to try to push the pace."

His coach Carlos Scocco has been pushing him 12-13 km per day with an increase to 14-15 km since December in preparation of his debut. "I can fulfill one of my goals that I promised myself a long time ago. Finishing would be the best and finishing well would be excellent. I will give everything that I have and hope to enjoy every moment."

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...
