Matheus Evangelista will be the only Brazilian swimmer competing in the 57 km Maratón Acuática Internacional Santa Fe – Coronda in Río Coronda in Argentina on February 3rd. He finished 10th in the 2014 event and 5th in the 2017 race.

"For me it is a great joy to always be in Santa Fe because it always warmly welcomes me.

I have many friends there. It was where I competed internationally for the first time in the South American Youth Games where I finished second. So to swim in Santa Fe with so many memories is very special
," said Evangelista.

"For this year's race, I am in very good shape. Last year, I focused a lot on the 10 km races where there were many races in Brazil where I finished third overall. I also competed on the FINA World Cup in a very competitive year.

I did not go on vacation and I kept training thinking about this race. So I am excited for a good race. I really like the 10 km distance for the Olympics, but I also like to do long races, both here and in Rosario [the 15 km Maratón Acuática Internacional Ciudad de Rosario

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.
