Winter Swimming Career[edit]

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

Vasilly Mosin was born to be a swimmer. He is disciplined and chiseled, broad shoulders tapering down to a slender waist. He is a gentle giant of outdoor swimming pools chiseled out of frozen lakes. He transformed an early retirement in warm-water pools to a powerful streak of sprinting championships at the Winter Swimming World Championships. His flat-out speed in near 0°C water temperatures and frigid conditions is nearly overshadowed by his discussions of global friendship and mutual respect across borders and cultures. For his sincere encouragement of all ice swimmers of all ages and abilities, for his blazing speed as the world's fastest cold water swimmer, for his deeply felt sense of friendship and solidarity with those who love the water and the ice, Vasilly Mosin's ice swimming sprints are a worthy nominee for the 2016 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year.
