Anna-Carin Nordin, Nominee For The World Open Water Swimming Woman Of The Year

Anna-Carin Nordin is a 41-year-old Swedish English Channel swimmer who successfully swam two marathon swims in two completely different parts of the world this year.

Following her passion, her summer season started with a 41K cold-water marathon swim between Sweden and Finland in 14 hours 51 minutes. It culminated with an equally tough 42K warm-water crossing in the Molokai Channel between Molokai Island and Oahu Island in Hawaii in a grueling 18 hours 30 minutes. 26 years ago, Anna-Carin started doing open water swims in Sweden (Riddarfjärden, Vansbro simningen, Göta Kanal simmet). She has now graduated to the major channel swims in an ideal niche for her.

For her inspirational nature, her quiet resolve and her success in achieving her dreams around the world in challenging conditions, Anna-Carin Nordin is nominated for the 2011 World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year
