Victor Colonese and Betina Lorscheitter won their respective races and solidified their top national ranking at the XXIII Campeonato Brasileiro 10 km race held yesterday in Base Naval de Aratu, Inema.

Colonese won the 10 km Campeã Brasileira de Maratonas Aquáticas in 1 hour 58 minutes 38 seconds only 2 seconds ahead of Alexandre Finco and four seconds ahead of Henrique Figueirinha. "I was very happy with today's result because it was a very strong race in the championship race. I am happy for the title of the 10 km in 2018 and also for good training for the [Brazilian] qualification race for [FINA World Championships in] South Korea, which will happen here a month here in that same place. I take this opportunity to congratulate the CBDA (Brazilian Confederation of Aquatic Sports) for its innovations."

Lorscheitter won in similarly close fashion, finishing in 2 hours 17 minutes 3 seconds followed three seconds later by Aricia Peree and six seconds later by Marina Amorim. The long-time FINA competitor said, "I love to swim in Inema. I always swim well here. I am very happy with one more stage to take first and the title of the 2018 Brazilian Championship."

Her victory came less than a month after she finished the longest race of her career, the 36 km Travessia do Leme ao Pontal in Rio de Janeiro in 8 hours 54 minutes.

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...
