It looks like it is going to be very difficult to beat Jordan Wilimovsky in next Tuesday's 10 km marathon swim at the 2018 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships in Japan.

Wilimovsky won the 1500m freestyle in the pool in 14:46.93 on the opening day of the Championships with his American teammates Zane Grothe (silver in 14:48.40) and Robert Finke (14:48.70) also putting in some good times.

Expected Men's 10 km Starters
* Nicholas Sloman (Australia)
* Victor Hugo Colonese (Brazil)
* Allan do Carmo (Brazil)
* Hau-li Fan (Canada)
* Eric Hedlin (Canada)
* Esteban Jose Enderica Salgado (Ecuador)
* Taiki Nonaka (Japan)
* Takeshi Toyoda (Japan)
* Scott Matthew (New Zealand)
* Taylor Abbott (USA)
* James Brinegar (USA)
* David Heron (USA)
* Mark Imazu (Guam, USA)
* Jordan Wilimovsky (USA)

On the other hand, the women's 1500m may turn out to be a real battle with a pack of Americans, Australians, Japanese and Canadian swimmers in the mix gunning after the lone Brazilian.

In the women's 800m race on the first day at the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, the open water swimmers fared well for themselves with Erica Sullivan 5th in 8:26.27, Haley Anderson 6th in 8:27.13, Ashley Wall 8th in 8:29.36, Mackenzie Padington 10th in 8:34.49, Chase Travis 11th in 8:37.86, Yukimi Moriya 12th in 8:41.44, Kate Sanderson 13th in 8:43.99, Justin Oliva Nicole 15th in 8:53.21, and Kurotori Gomez Mineri in 18th in 10:58.33.

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...
