2017 World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year Nomination[edit]

Ludmila Maller is hot in a cold community. The Siberian native from Novosibirsk won the 2016-2017 International Winter Swimming Association World Cup woman’s title among the crème-de-la-crème of the world’s best and most hardened winter swimmers. Competing in the 55-59 age group, she barely edged out defending champion Jaimie Monahan 536 to 530 points despite only coming in the Russian Pacific Open Cup in Russia, the Taierzhuang International Winter Swimming Festival in China, and the Pirita Open in Estonia. She dominated the winter swimming scene with victories in the 25m and 50m breaststrokes, 25m butterfly, and 25m, 50m, 100m, 200m freestyles. For her dominating performance on the Winter Swimming World Cup circuit, for her versatility in swimming fast in cold water, for representing her region and country very well in a fast-growing sport, Ludmila Maller is a worthy nominee for the 2017 World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year.
