Open-Water Swimming – A Complete Guide

Olympian Emma Davis shares her expertise for a range of distances


Before Aileen Reid was mounting the world’s podiums, Emma Davis was Ireland’s foremost triathlete, the first from the Emerald Isle to race at the Olympics (Beijing in 2008) and silver medallist at the World Aquathlon Champs in 2012.


Away from racing, Davis is a sports physiotherapist and coach, and this expertise combines to provide the basis of her Open-Water Swimming – A Complete Guide tome.

Other topics include the importance of nutrition for swimming, core stability and stretching programmes and training plans for 750m, 1,500m distances, Ironman events, 10km and even Channel swimming.
