Her World Open Water Swimming Association nomination reads, 365 days per day behind the scenes, Lexie Kelly helps promote open water swimmers and archives a plethora of information on all aspects of the open water community. Quietly and without fanfare or expectations, she organizes conferences and awards ceremonies to honor open water luminaries.
