ABOUT THE AWARDS
NZ is right at the top of the world when it comes to ultra distance swimming. The Awards is a time to publicly celebrate these achievements.
It is also a night for the Open Water Swimming community at large to come together and celebrate our sport. The awards are being held every two years and this year, this is being held in the Capital.
Every attending swimmer who has swum a solo swim of 20 km and more anywhere in the world in the 2018-20 season will receive the NZ Ultra Swim Plaque of Recognition. The Season is 1 June to 31 May.
Other Awards - three recipients will receive Lifetime Awards for their Service and Achievements in the Sport.
The Awards also will recognise the achievements of Swimmers in past years - attending swimmers from Past years will also be honoured with the NZ Award as much as revenue will allow. Awards for Past years is a catch up feature of these Awards.
Join us in June 2021 in Wellington for the next Awards.
