2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year

Antonio Argüelles and Adam Skolnick’s Travesía Interminable won the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Award. Its nomination was as follows: His life reads like an adventure novel; his story could be made into a movie: a young charismatic boy from Mexico with an entrepreneurial talent finds his way to the halls of Stanford University in search of going to the Olympics. But his aquatic dreams are put on hold - temporarily - as he ventures out in the world and eventually finds success back to Mexico. His book, Travesía Interminable, or The Forever Swim in English, was written by Antonio Argüelles about his fascinating experiences en route to achieving the Oceans Seven at the age of 58. The 312-page book, co-authored by Adam Skolnick, describes his successes and the largely unseen obstacles that he had to overcome. For sharing his inner thoughts, worries and challenges, for describing his colorful, relentlessly goal-setting life, and for becoming the oldest man to achieve the Oceans Seven, the book Travesía Interminable by Antonio Argüelles and Adam Skolnick is a worthy nominee for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.

Back Cover in English

The Forever Swim delves into the inner thoughts, vision, loves, worries and challenges of Antonio Argüelles. He describes his colorful, goal-setting life within the dramatic backdrop of becoming the oldest person in history to achieve the Oceans Seven. Viewed ignorantly from an outside perspective, Antonio's accomplishments are so numerous and his successes so constant throughout his life that it is hard to fathom the innumerable obstacles he actually had to overcome. While Antonio is globally respected and admired for his triumphs both on dryland and in the water, The Forever Swim provides an unknown, inside view of a remarkable person. The Forever Swim will result in readers respecting this personable icon even more. - Steven Munatones
