Achievements

“Marathon swimming is not a spectator sport, though maybe it should be. At first it’s mildly interesting, then vastly dull, then eventually the astonishing achievement becomes apparent.

Endurance sport is not beautiful. It’s the opposite. It’s wrecking, pummelling, stretching a body into an ambulance-worthy state. It’s yelling ‘keep going’ to nerve endings that scream, entirely reasonably, for an end.

Marathon swimming, like all marathons, isn’t merely a body against a distance. It’s the mind at war with its meat-puppet.” – Nick Miller, Sydney Morning Herald, 2016.
