Through the descriptive power of his written words, Adam Skolnick has delved passionately into the open water community, chronicling the exploits of The Deep Enders, a group of marathon swimmers in California, to the passing of Nicholas Mevoli, a champion freediver from New York and subject of ONE BREATH: Freediving, Death and the Quest to Shatter Human Limits.

On behalf of the New York Times, Skolnick is currently following Kimberley Chambers, a member of Night Train Swimmers, on her 93-mile (149.6 km) solo swimming attempt down the Sacramento River in northern California beginning tomorrow [see here].

Skolnick’s poetry of the pen will bring about the drama and the slowly building excitement of Chambers’ estimated 45+ hour solo charity swim.

Follow Chambers live here and Skolnick’s future works here.
