Océane Peretti Wins Swim Around Key West

Courtesy of WOWSA, Key West, Florida.

Florida International University coach Randy Horner and distance freestyler Océane Peretti spoke about the Swim Around Key West before the yesterday's race. Their focus on mental preparation and longer open water training swims worked out to plan as Peretti was the overall winner in 4 hours 5 minutes in the 12.5-mile circumnavigation of Key West, Florida.

The 20-year-old French student who moved from Hyères, France to Miami, Florida was the youngest in the field. She was pushed by 32-year-old Craig Frederiksen from Illinois who finished second in 4:10:19 and Dimitar Videnov from Bulgaria who finished third in 4:14:25.

Peretti came across the finish line on Smathers Beach with blood streaming down her ankle. She explains her injury, "The ankle is completely fine, no worries. I didn't see the piling of the bridge coming and the current was strong so I got pushed onto it, but avoided it at last minute so only my ankle got hit."

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...
