Mariah Denigan Loves Leading

Courtesy of USA Swimming, Tempe Town Lake, Arizona.

After leading much of the first half of the USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championship 10 km race yesterday in Tempe Town Lake, the Mariah Denigan faded to 10th place among the best open water swimming females in America.

But that was 24 hours ago.

Today, the 14-year-old from Northern Kentucky Clippers Swimming led for most of the race again, but this time came out comfortably on top to win the junior 5 km race. Her performance - which would have been good enough to place fourth in the boys race - qualified for the FINA Junior World Open Water Swimming Championships this September in Eilat, Israel.

She is a quick study and took her 10th-place finish as a learning experience, “My strategy was to not go out as fast as I did yesterday, just hang back with the other girls who pushed me very well. Then go on the second lap and take control and take over on the third lap.

Yesterday, my coaches told me to take it out fast because I’m always very timid in the races, so I just wanted to get out there and see how long I could last with the other girls

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.
