Global Marathon Swimming Awards 2016 - WINNERS ANNOUNCED
The votes have been tallied in the fifth annual MSF Global Marathon Swimming Awards. Thanks to everyone who participated.
Lori King is the winner of the Yudovin Award for Most Adventurous Swim, for her 21-hour, 36-mile circumnavigation of Bermuda. This was only the second-ever such swim (after Sean O'Connell 40 years ago), the first by a woman, and the new record for fastest. Lori's swim was documented in an extensive log, and covered in an article in the Royal Gazette.
Well done, Lori, and thanks to @rondi for the nomination.
Congratulations, as well, to the other finalists for the Yudovin Award: Greg O'Connor and Jeff Miller.
Check back over the next three days for winners of the Streeter Award, Barra Award, and Solo Swim of the Year.
