Angela Maurer Nominated For The World Open Water Swimming Woman Of The Year

Angela Maurer seemingly gets better year by year despite being twice as old as some of her elite competitors. The 36-year-old mother of one child, she has a perspective on life that is cool-headed, calm and composed — which all serve her very well in the chaotic cacophony of competition.

She not only qualified for the Olympic 10km Marathon Swim at the 2012 London Olympics as one of the fastest marathon swimmers in the world, and just barely lost the 25K world championships in 32°C waters in a heroic silver-medal performance in Shanghai, but she also won the 2011 FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup series after traveling from continent to continent. She continues to train hard – having swum over 60,000 kilometers during her career or greater than the circumference of the Earth – and is nominated for the 2011 World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year
