Haley Anderson Continues To Roll Onto Tokyo

Courtesy of WOWSA, Tateyama, Hojo Beach, Chiba Prefecture, Japan.

Haley Anderson of the USA has a kick, a finishing kick that is.

Her kick nearly got her to win a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics 10 km marathon swim - and her passion for the sport continues as she aims for 2020 in Tokyo.

Similarly, Canada's Stephanie Horner, a three-time Olympian, is aiming for Tokyo 2020 again in the 10 km race. But she finished 8th at today's Pan Pacific Swimming Championships 10 km marathon swim. “Obviously it’s not necessarily the best race I would have liked to have swam, but I think you learn from every experience so I have to focus on that, take it forward with me and try to get better next year.

I’m not really satisfied with where I’m at now and I don’t really want to leave the sport on a note that I’m not really happy with. If I keep getting better I don’t see why I would stop. I feel like I still have lots to learn. Mark’s been great in guiding me and he has so much experience. I feel like he’s got a lot to give, I trust him and I want to get on his boat."

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.
