Swim Channel, Swimming’s Media Mogulists

Patrick Winkler, Daniel Takata and Guilherme Freitas have created a juggernaut in Brazil with their Swim Channel.

They have a huge Facebook audience. They broadcast on radio every day and archive the programs on Sound Cloud. 365 days a year Winkler provides insightful commentary on swimming and swimmers. They also have a wildly successful blog. And their signature media platform, a colorful magazine called the Swim Channel was deservedly the 2012 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.

The trio of Winkler, Takata and Freitas is all over the place, touching all sorts of audience on all sorts of media platforms, passionately writing and promoting the sport of open water swimming.
