Several possible new records have been set in the English Channel this month – the first ever 5-man winter English Channel relay crossing, which is also the earliest English Channel swim in any calendar year since records began.

How to choose a good Swimming Channel Swimming Coach

Choosing a good coach is crucial for your personal or professional development.

In my opinion, a good coach is like a good doctor (yes, I will compare a coach with a doctor, since both specialties are related to the body and mind of athletes, and by often a coach should understand more than a doctor in a narrow specialization).
Here are some guidelines to help you find the right coach for your needs:

Diana Nyad’s Swimming Brought Her Glory, Fame, And An Adversary Dedicated To Exposing Her Lies

Daniel Slosberg wants me to watch a TV clip. It's from an October 1998 episode of The Roseanne Show. Among the guests is Diana Nyad, who at the time was the most famous female swimmer this country ever produced. Slosberg, a former participant in the niche sport of endurance swimming where Nyad toiled, directs me to the part of the show where Nyad recalled with passion her participation in the Olympic trials, where she claims to have competed as a 17-year-old hoping to secure a spot at the Mexico City Games of 1968.
