WOWSA Nomination

When someone else singles you out for praise, and then makes a video about your achievements, it’s difficult to know what to say. Earlier this month Open Water Source revealed they’d included my name in their list of nominations for World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year. For full details on the WOWSA awards and some of the amazing other people who have been nominated and to vote, see here, but if you want to see why my name was put forward take a look at the short video below.

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
