WOWSA Performance of the Year Nominee A Swim For The Coastlines – Un Nado Por Las Costas (Dominican Republic) – Coastal Cleanup Crowds

Marcos Díaz from the Dominican Republic has traveled the world to marathon swims of all kinds – amateur races, professional races, solo swims and wetsuit swims. 

With charisma and talent to connect with people from all walks of life, Marcos is as comfortable in conferences with politicians as he is with surfers on the beach.  But he has not done a marathon swim on the north coast of the home country of Dominican Republic until this year. 


Marcos, the United Nations Development Program Goodwill Ambassador, did an unprecedented 22K swim in extremely rough conditions as part of the International Coastal Cleanup Day, drawing nearly 20,000 people at the finish.  For his ability to help increase public awareness, generate public support while promoting the sport of marathon swimming and swimmer’s relationship to their marine environment, Marcos Díaz’s Un Nado Por Las Costas is a worthy nominee for the 2011 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year.
