2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination

The Waikiki Roughwater Swim DIY Completion Certificate program was nominated for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year by the World Open Water Swimming Association:
The Waikiki Roughwater Swim has been attracting many Olympic swimmers, fast master swimmers, and all kinds of recreational swimmers to Honolulu, Hawaii since 1970. Starting next to the Diamond Head volcano and stretching across one of the world's most famous beaches, 33,881 swimmers have completed the 2.4-mile Waikiki Roughwater Swim. Swimmers from 25 countries come back every year to the middle of the Pacific in order experience the beauty and competitiveness of the race where 11 swimmers have completed the race more than 30 times. Swimmers can log in, automatically find, and print out their own swim completion certificates in their home or office. The official certificates and database - created by Jim Cotton and developed by Michael Rök - includes their official time and overall and age-group placing. It is a convenient, immediate way to document and confirm one's performance relative to the thousands of others who have done the iconic swim. For making an easy-to-use, automated service, for uploading and archiving every single finisher and their times and placing for historical purposes, and for continuing to add new features and services to one of the world's best oceans swims, the Waikiki Roughwater Swim DIY Swim Certificate program by Jim Cotton and Michael Rök is a worthy nominee for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
