Hanna Bakuniak had an outstanding competition at the International Ice Swimming Association 3rd World Championship and 1st Ice Swimming Arctic Cup in Murmansk, Russia this week.

She finished 3rd in the 200m freestyle, 3rd in the Ice Kilometer, 4th in the 50m butterfly, and culminated the meet with a victory - for her first world title - in the 50m freestyle today as the snow fell on the frozen lake venue.

The 23-year-old Polish star had to give it everything she had to just barely beat Germany's Alisa Fatum who won the 500m freestyle and Ice Kilometer as well as placing 2nd in the 50m butterfly and 50m freestyle.

In third place just slightly back was another young emerging star Ciara Doran of Ireland who won the 200m freestyle, finished 2nd in the Ice Kilometer, 5th in the 50m butterfly and 3rd in the 50m freestyle.

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.
