Becca Mann, one of the world’s fastest freestylers in both the pool or open water, described her experiences in competing at the FINA World Swimming Championships against the world’s best on today’s edition of WOWSA Live.
The 22-year-old published author and screenwriter at USC, who was the first person to complete the Maui Nui Swim, talked about:
* competing at the 2013, 2015 and 2017 FINA World Championships
* facing the extreme physicality among competitions around turn buoys and feeding stations
* checking in and technical meetings before racing
* racing with a black eye and swollen lip
* the difference between yellow cards and a red cards
* the speed of racing at the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim qualification race
In addition to two books (The Stolen Dragon of Quanx and Purgatory) and teleplays (Project Eve, Everest Island, Soar, and Seized), she has also written two screenplays including Incidental Contact about a murder in the open water and Exiled about two sisters in a leper colon circa 1868 in Hawaii.
