Field Gives Chase To Travis

15-year-old Chase Travis took off and led most of the 7.5 km race at the USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championship yesterday in Tempe Town Lake, Arizona - eventually winning the race by 10 seconds.

Leah DeGeorge finished second and will represent the United States at the 2018 FINA World Junior Open Water Championships in Israel.

Travis said, “I had a different plan going in, but a lot of things happen in a race and you just adjust. My plan was to not be in the lead the first three laps and then take the lead the last two laps, but that didn’t really turn out. I just felt better than expected."

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...
