2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination[edit]

Asmuth's book was nominated for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year by the World Open Water Swimming Association:
Paul Asmuth competed in 59 professional marathon swimming races and crossed the English Channel three times over a lengthy career that coincided with a successful career as a CPA in California. He won 7 World Professional Marathon Swimming Federation titles and set records from Canada to Italy. As the dominant figure in marathon swimming during the 1980's, he struck fear in the hearts of his competitors. But deep down in his own heart and soul, God played a major role in his success. He describes in Marathon Swimming: The Sport of the Soul how God directed him throughout his life, putting him in the right place and surrounding him with supportive coaches and teammates. For frankly telling his journey with God throughout myriad bodies of water around the world, for retelling his thoughts and actions in several iconic professional marathon swimming races, and sharing his stories of passion, faith and grit, Marathon Swimming: The Sport of the Soul by Paul Asmuth is a worthy nominee for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
