Olympic Swimming Marathon Introduction

Swimming Marathon, or ultra-long-distance swimming, is a class of open water swimming. Not like the use of the term for foot-races where the distance is well-defined, the space of a marathon swim varies from event to event. Tides, plane currents and wind-chop are major determinants of finish-times. For a given course, these factors can differ significantly from day to day, making insignificant any attempt to draw conclusions about athletic capability by comparing finish times from performances undertaken on different days.
Distance is divided into world marathon swimming records (at least 10 kilometers) or world open water swimming records (under 10 kilometers). The Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming includes three famous marathon swims around the world: (1) 21 miles (33.7K) across the English Channel between England and France, (2) 21 miles (33.7K) across the Catalina Channel in Southern California, USA, and (3) 28.5 miles (45.8K) around the Manhattan Island in New York, USA.
First marathon swims was introduced in 1875 by Captain Matthew Webb, when he became the first person to swim across the English Channel. Similarly, perhaps the most well-known marathon swim of all-time was expert in 1926 by Gertrude Ederle, when she became, at 19 years of age, the first woman to swim across the English Channel. In doing so, she demolished the existing world record for the crossing. Swimming Marathon is a regular part of Olympic since 1900 in Paris. However, the rules were official in 1908, when the London Games staged the first Olympic Swimming struggle to be held in a pool.
