All That Jazz At The Commonwealth Games

Photo courtesy of @TeamWales heading to Gold Coast, Australia.

Jazmin Roxy Carlin, nicknamed Jazz, is a British competitive swimmer, who represents Wales and the Great British national swim team. She competes primarily in freestyle events, and is currently based at the University of Bath. She won gold for Wales at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and two silver medals for Great Britain in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in the 400m and 800m freestyle.

She was selected as Wale’s flag bearer at the opening ceremonies for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia on April 4th. "To have this honour is such an incredible feeling and I just can't wait to lead out the team."

In addition to working as a certified personal trainer, Carlin also started to dabble in open water swimming last year. She won the 2017 Swim Serpentine 1-mile race in London and competed in the 2017 FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup races in both China (where she finished 11th) and Hong Kong (where she finished 22nd).

It will be interesting to see if she will continue to improve in the open water and attempt an Mellouli Double at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

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 tide is rising for open water swimming.
