2016 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year nomination[edit]

KIM SWIMS was nominated for the 2016 WOWSA Awards, a recognition of outstanding men, women, performances and offerings around the globe sponsored by the World Open Water Swimming Association in the category of World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.

KIM SWIMS is much more and much deeper than its film title suggests. The documentary, directed by Kate Webber and co-produced with David Orr, celebrates the depth of both the human spirit and its relation to water as embodied by Kimberley Chambers, one of the few people who have completed the Oceans Seven. Trained as a classical ballerina, Chambers was transformed into a swimmer after barely escaping the amputation of her leg due to an accident. Told through Chambers' completely improbable, mind-boggling and astonishing path to becoming one of the world's most adventurous and accomplished open water swimmers, KIM SWIMS received Phase 1 funding on Kickstarter and is running Phase 2 on the Seed & Spark movie crowd-funding platform to bring the film to life. For the tear-inducing, inspirational message that the documentary delivers, for showcasing the unlikely transformation of a ballerina to a risk-taking channel swimmer, for delving deep inside the sport of open water swimming, KIM SWIMS is a worthy nominee for the 2016 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
