Cork Caps Crazy Workouts For Crowners

Courtesy of Ned Denison, Cork, Ireland.

Another Cork Distance Week is in the books.

The most challenging, most difficult, longest marathon and channel and cold water swimming preparation camp designed by International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Honor Administrator Ned Denison saw dozens of accomplished and aspiring swimmers push themselves to their limits in Sandycove Island, Cork, Ireland.

High mileage and significant psychological stress over 8 days, concluding with the Body Brain Confusion Swim, were the treats handed out by Denison to help the swimmers achieve their various marathon swimming and channel swimming goals.

The camp also honored the Triple Crowners among its campers for those to have achieved the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming.

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.
