For Australian swimmers aiming to get on the podium in the major international open water swims coming up in 2019, Brighton Beach in South Australia is the all-important site of the 2019 Australian Open Water Championships this week.

The first day saw training teammates Kareena Lee and Nick Sloman climb on top of the podium as they fended off their domestic rivals and a slew of foreign competitors from China, Japan, Canada, New Zealand and Hungary.

21-year-old Sloman defended his title from his 2018 victory on the opening day of the championships while the 25-year-old Lee won her first national title.

Sloman, Kai Edwards, third-place Hayden Cotter and Bailey Armstrong earned themselves a spot on the Australian national team that will travel to Doha for the first leg of the FINA Marathon Swim World Series. The race is part of the qualification process for the FINA World Championships in South Korea later this summer.

Kareena Lee easily won over her Australian competitors in addition to a slew of China's elite open water swimmers. Lee, sisters Chloe and Chelsea Gubecka, and Mackenzie Brazier will travel to Doha representing Australia in May for the FINA Marathon Swim World Series.

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.
