The Men Will Race And Re-evaluate

Courtesy of FINA, Doha, Qatar.

Olympic 1500m freestyle champion Gregorio Paltrinieri of Italy, world champion Jordan Wilimovsky of the USA and Jack Burnell of Great Britain are among the who's who at the opening stop of the 2019 FINA Marathon Swim World Series that kicks off this Saturday, February 16th in Doha Bay, Qatar.

2016 Olympic 10 km champion Ferry Weertman is one of the very few superstars who are not competing this weekend.

But everyone else who will be fighting for the top 10 Olympic qualification spots at the 2019 FINA World Championships will be there. The podium finishers will be satisfied that their training and preparations are going to plan - and everyone else will re-evaluate their swim and strategies.

The event is live streamed on FINAtv with the women's race at 9:00am (GMT+3) and the men's race at starting at 1:00pm (GMT+3) along Doha’s stunning Corniche, a 7 km-long waterfront promenade.

Olympic contender Simone Ruffini, shown above who finished sixth in the 2016 Olympic 10K Marathon Swim on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, said, “I’m really happy to be here in Doha. I’m feeling strong for this race and as this is a qualifying event for the Italian team for the World Champs, this is very important to me. I’m also happy that there are lots of swimmers in this race."

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.
