Tokyo Olympic Games – Marathon Swim Predictions

“Expect the Unexpected​”

WOWSA expects the unexpected at the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Both the men’s and women’s races will be extremely close in the very flat-, very warm-water, extremely humid and tightly-packed conditions.

It is anyone’s guess what will happen in the women’s race on August 4th and the men’s race on August 5th. Who will win gold? Who will finish in the Top 10? Will anyone have to quarantine or be prevented from swimming due to COVID-19 regulations?

No one knows. But WOWSA based its bold predictions on the track records of the world’s fastest marathon swimmers combined other intangibles, tendencies and tactics of each Olympic athlete.

The Forever Swim

Dear Friends,

My new book, The Forever Swim, is now available and I am honored to giveaway 10 signed copies to lucky raffle winners. In it I tell the story of how I completed the Oceans Seven, but also how I, a hyperactive overweight boy from Mexico City, would chase an Olympic dream, attend Stanford, and wade into the tangled web of Mexican politics. The Forever Swim reminds readers that no dream, however bold, is ever out of reach, as long as we are willing to chase it down with relentless discipline and joy.
