The 5th Stroke 10 Years On: When The USA Led Leap In Standards With A Drive Of Dolphin

Swimvortex - 6 hours 57 min ago
This day ten years ago in Melbourne, the heat was about to be turned up on swimming speed without a hint of material advantage. It was the eve of competition at a World Championships and the United States had been practising the art of dolphin-kicking out of starts and turns like it had never been used before. Then at the helm of Britain, Bill Sweetenham coined the phrase 'the fifth stroke' in an interview for The Times with this author. He said at the time: "The dolphin kick we're seeing here has to be considered the fifth stroke now. I think swimming has moved to a new era, a new level.

The Elephant In The Russian Room As Home Debate Turns Spotlight On Salnikov

Swimvortex - Fri, 24/03/2017 - 18:23
Editorial: Vladimir Salnikov comes under scrutiny in a long feature at the sovsport.ru website in which the main arguments for forcing his out of the top seat at the Russian Swimming Federation is "loss of trust" in connection with a "failure to produce results". The conclusion and the copious words that flow before it, some praising Yuliya Efimova* and others who elsewhere in the world are seen as a definite part of Russia's problems in sport, point to a mood to have Salnikov removed from office. The issues raised are fascinating; but they really ought to stretch to doping ... and citing Efimova as the word of wisdom is not exactly helpful

Ann Meraw (Mundigel) - 1917-2017

marathonswimmers.org - Fri, 24/03/2017 - 03:02

Noted Canadian (BC) marathon swimmer Ann Meraw passed away at age 100:


In 2008, Meraw earned the Order of B.C. in recognition of her accomplishments as a distance swimmer, lifeguard and swim coach.
In 1985, she was inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame, as a builder.
Meraw first rose to prominence as a long-distance swimmer. She swam 16.1 kilometres across Howe Sound and back in 1927, then across Burrard Inlet at age 13, from Vancouver to Bowen Island.
She then swam 83 km in 16 hours and 14 minutes, non-stop, using a six-beat crawl at sixty strokes per minute, on Okanagan Lake.
In 1958, she swam 142 km in the same lake, from Kelowna to Penticton, in 32 hours, 12 minutes, a feat that has never been matched, according to the hall of fame.
Meraw held seven world records in marathon swimming, four of which still stand.
Her vision, said her grandson, was to swim as far as her eyes could see.
“For her, it was about being the best that she could be, to push limits, in some cases ones that no human has ever duplicated.”
Meraw became Canada’s first female registered lifeguard in 1943, and the only woman coach ever in the World Professional Federation of Swimming.

Presumably the distances are a bit off for a couple of those (83 km in 16 hours?), and also interesting that Okanagan was the site of other recent self-proclaimed "world-record" attempts ... but clearly this was a remarkable and pioneering swimmer. RIP!

Nubble Light Challenge Returns!

marathonswimmers.org - Thu, 23/03/2017 - 22:56

Hello Everyone! If you find your way to the Maine coast in mid August, the Nubble Light Swim Challenge is back on! August 12, 2017 this year.

Nominated as one of the Top 100 Swims in the World, the venue takes swimmers on a 2.4mile journey from Long Sands Beach to Short Sands Beach thru "The Gut" between the mainland at Sohier Park, and the island that Nubble Lighthouse resides on. Location: York, ME

Not only a beautiful location, but a challenging event. The swim can toss up rough seas, with 2 different sets of swim conditions with the peninsula dividing the wind and tidal flow, and The Gut to swim through. Water temps are expected to be in the low to mid 60s, but previous years have seen sub 50 degree temps on race day, adding to the swim's degree of difficulty. Great event for spectators!

Here is the event site: https://www.nubblelightchallenge.org/
