We are now accepting nominations for the 2009 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
We have covered events, trends, athletes (young, not-so-young, Olympic and not-so-fast), coaches, administrators, race promoters, solo swims and relays in over 50 countries in 2009 and the number of worthy individuals are too numerous to count.
But the world of open water swimming is too large and growing too fast for us to cover everything. Therefore, your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
The purpose of the 2009 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year award is to recognize individuals who represent all that is good with open water swimming.
Please email your recommendations to headcoach@10Kswim.com.
The 2008 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year was Randy Nutt who has spent decades in the sport. Randy always lends a hand, shares a passion and supports others on their way to victory. His willingness to smile under stress and spend time with others are helped make him the 2008 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
