I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short film, this short swimming video, Prepaing for The Bering Strait, captured by Sean Mac an tShithigh.
I am always on the lookout for great swim videos. If you have an interesting or beautiful swimming-related video and/or animated short, please submit to Gold Medal Mel Stewart at swimswam to be featured. We appreciate all points of view on pools, lakes, rivers and oceans. Please include a little background on why you captured the video and the equipment you used (cameras, lens, editing software, etc.). Feel free to add your own story as well, 175 to 200 words works best.
From the producer:
Irish long-distance swimming duo, Nuala Moore and Anne Marie Ward, hope to be among the first to swim the treacherous Bering Strait between Siberia and Alaska. In preparing for the icy 53 mile crossing, Nuala Moore has been training at a very unusual location…a freezing corrie lake high up in the west Kerry mountains – above the famous Conor Pass – called Pedlar’s Lake.
