CALL FOR NOMINATIONS - 2015 Yudovin Award for Most Adventurous Swim
It's that time again! We're pleased to announce the Fourth Annual Global Marathon Swimming Awards, the only peer-nominated, peer-voted awards for the sport of marathon swimming.
Please submit your nominations for the Yudovin Award for Most Adventurous Swim, by commenting on this thread. To submit a private nomination, please contact us.
The Yudovin Award was conceived in 2014 and named after renowned marathon swimmer David Yudovin, with his personal blessing. As many of you know, David tragically passed away earlier this year, so this award has taken on new meaning.
The Yudovin Award recognizes the single most adventurous solo swim of the year. This award is intended to hono(u)r the spirit of adventure, as opposed to pure athleticism. So, the most interesting or unusual swim, as opposed to the longest or fastest swim.
A single swim may be nominated for both the Yudovin Award and Solo Swim of the Year - however, this swim may be a finalist in only one of the two categories.
In your nominations, please explain why the individual deserves the nomination.
Finalists will be selected on the basis of community support, as measured by "Likes." So, if you agree with a nomination and want to "second" it, click the "Like" button on that nomination. Nominations will remain open for approximately three weeks.
