Alisa Fatum made a huge debut at Stage One of the International Ice Swimming Association World Cup Series at the 5th Ice Swimming German Open in Veitsbronn, Germany.

Swimming in the fastest heat with the two former world record holders, Hanna Bakuniak from Poland and Julia Wittig from Germany, the 23-year-old from Leipzig took off and never looked back. She finished in 12:48:70 to break Bakuniak's record of 13:05.7 set in the same competition last year.

Fatum was so fast in the 1.4°C water and 2.0°C evening air that she even was faster than all the men including 18-year-old Sven Elfferich who finished in 12:52:30.

250 athletes from 19 countries competed in the first leg of the World Cup Series, including Richard Hirmer who completed the Ice Kilometer in the 1.4°C water after over 30 minutes. The boisterous event was organized by the ubiquitous Christof Wandratsch.

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.
