Team France Wins Open Relay At World Juniors

There is a different kind of pressure when you swim in an individual race and when you swim as a representative of your country in a relay.

The athletes who raced in the team relays on the third and final day of the 2018 FINA Open Water World Junior Swimming Championships in the Red Sea faced the latter kind of pressure.

19 national teams raced in the Open Relay for 19-year-old and under athletes where each swimmer swam 1,250 meters.

Team Russia maintained the leading position until the third lap but ended being overtaken by France’s Enzo Roldan Munoz overcame Team Russia, to claim victory in 55:39.9. A day after he finished second in the 10 km, he won his second medal. USA's anchor Michael Brinegar finished in 56:06.7, while Italy's Nicola Roberto finished third in 56:11.3.

At different points in the race, Team Brazil and Team Russia led while France, USA and Spain were also in close contention for podium positions.

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.
