The Morrison Report by Evan Morrison for Marathon Swimmers Federation is nominated for the 2014 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.

"The open water swimming community is rapidly shifting from paper and pen to laptops and the cloud. The embodiment of this shift is the comprehensively compiled digital Observer Report created by Evan Morrison for the Marathon Swimmers Federation. Version 1.0 documented Craig Lenning’s epic swim from the Farallon Islands to the California mainland and was evident of this tectonic informational shift in the sport. Morrison’s Report included myriad pertinent data while utilizing handheld devices, the cloud, mapping services, and online information that dramatically changes the landscape of reporting open water swims. For his creative use of low cost, relatively easy-to-use technology, for his able demonstration of presenting digital documentation and incorporating videos, photos and GPS tracking into a historical archiving of information, for setting the standard and showing the aquatic community how it can be done, the minutiae-filled Morrison Report by Evan Morrison for the Marathon Swimmers Federation is a worthy nominee for the 2014 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year."
