WOWSA Woman of the Year Nominee Angela Maurer (Germany) – Mother of Marathoners

Angela Maurer is back again and 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 10K Marathon Swim at the 2012 London Olympics as one of the top ten 10K 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 for the fifth time overall after traveling from continent to continent.   

Angela remains among the fastest and most fit endurance swimmers on the planet while working as an Associate Commissioner of Police. 

She continues to train hard – having swum over 60,000 kilometers during her career or greater than the circumference of the Earth.  For her continued success at the highest echelon and her longevity in the sport, Angela Maurer
