2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination
The IISA World Cup Series was nominated for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year by the World Open Water Swimming Association:
The benefits of cold water swimming has been known for millennia, but it was only in 2009 that the sport of ice swimming was formalized and popularized by Ram Barkai and his South African colleagues. After defining ice swimming as a completion of at least 1 km in 5°C water and creating a ratification process, the International Ice Swimming Association has been rapidly expanding on a hockey stick uptick. Its growth is documented on every parameter: increases in corporation sponsorship, television and media exposure, number of official Ice Miles completed, and professionally-run international competitions. The International Ice Swimming Association World Cup Series is the latest embodiment of growth and popularity. The Series includes several events for newcomers and veterans: 50m butterfly, 100m breaststroke, 200m, 500m and 1 km freestyle races as well as 4 x 50m and 4 x 100m relays. For creating a formalized, global excitement about the sport of ice swimming, for standardizing safety, logistical and operational procedures around the world across cultures and in different languages from Russian and Chinese, Norwegian to Czech, for continuing to enhance the competitive experiences for ice swimmers of all ages and abilities, the International Ice Swimming Association World Cup Series by Ram Barkai is a worthy nominee for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
