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

Swimming in the Sink: An Episode of the Heart is nominated for the 2016 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year by the World Open Water Swimming Association. The nomination reads, "Lynne Cox's voice has echoed across the waterways since she authored her first book, Swimming to Antarctica, in 2004. After setting channel records in her teens, engaging in international diplomacy with her unprecedented Bering Strait swim in 1987, and completing more than 60 extraordinary swims around the world, Cox cemented her legacy with a series of books, delving into a number of profound topics. Swimming in the Sink: An Episode of the Heart is arguably her most touching and surprising book, intertwining her strength of character and renowned athleticism with human frailties that come from illness and grief. For writing about subjects that everyone can relate to, for showing a different side of her strengths and weaknesses, for writing so eloquently from her most generous heart, Swimming in the Sink: An Episode of the Heart is a worthy nominee for the 2016 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year."
