Meredith Novack part 2 – Episode 8

Mere Novack talks with Talbott about training for breaking a world record in episode 8. Training, a key for success in triathlons, open water swimming challenges, including marathon swimming (6+miles/10+KM). Hear from this elite athlete how she trains. We also talk a bit about SHARKS, yikes!

Her bio from BASED IN ​HAWAII HAVING RETURNED FROM SINGAPORE… THIS FULL-TIME SWIM COACH and former professional triathlete turned World Record holding, and extreme marathon swimmer…is one of the most marketable and recognizable athletes on the planet! After a World Record channel swimming debut, people notice when Meredith walks into the room but not for the obvious reasons… ​

The Kate Moss of the channel swimming world – by most athletic industry standards Meredith is “not impressive enough” meaning that at 5’6″ and just over 120 pounds she is too short, too small and too old – plus (her favorite) she doesn’t “look like an athlete”. According to most marketing professionals “SHE DOES NOT EVEN LOOK LIKE A SWIMMER”!

The Moloka’i Channel, also known as Ka’iwi Channel, is 26 miles (42 km) wide with a depth of 2,300 feet (700 M) and spans the Hawaiian Islands O’ahu and Moloka’i, is one of the most difficult open water swims due to the open Pacific conditions and aggressive water life. It is one of the Oceans Seven swims.
