Open Water Tips!

This video hits a few key points Dr. Menzer said in class. Swimming in a straight line, as seemingly simple as it is, is extremely important in swimming. (Diana Nyad had a custom made lane-line attached of the boat specifically for the purpose of wasting time and energy getting off course). The athlete speaking also notes there is a lot of contact with other swimmers as well, which should not deter or fluster a swimmer who has his or her sight on the finish line. He also mentions drafting, which is taking advantage of people around and in front of you.
Also, note that the video is posted in a website catered to triathletes, which are becoming becoming a large audience for open water swimming.
