Florian Wellbrock Wins Big-Time With Upset In Gravelines

Courtesy of Ligue Européenne de Natation, Gravelines, France.

It was an upset plain and simple. Florian Wellbrock of Germany has now become a legitimate medal threat in the 10 km distance with an unexpected, dominant victory at the LEN Open Water Cup in Gravelines, France this morning.

Outside of American Jordan Wilimovsky, nearly all the big guns on the men's elite side competed including French world champions Marc-Antoine Olivier and Axel Reymond.

But it was Wellbrock who topped the field, finishing over 11 seconds over 2016 Dutch Olympic champion Ferry Weertman.

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.
