Vladimir Turovsky, Courageous In Murmansk

Courtesy of International Ice Swimming Association, Murmansk, Russia.

Vladimir Turovsky (Владимир Туровский) is a 45-year-old Russian swimmer from Borovskiy who is the fastest double amputee in the ice. He finished 132nd overall in the 50m freestyle at the 2019 International Ice Swimming Association 3rd World Championship and 1st Ice Swimming Arctic Cup in 1:35:99 as snow was falling as the water temperature was just over 0°C [shown above].

Newcomer Quinn Fitzgerald, a 36-year-old American from San Francisco, upset the field and won his first world title in 26.94 in Murmansk, Russia. It was the first world swimming title by a Yale University graduate since Don Schollander was the reigning freestyle champion in 1964.

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.
