Dingle’s Nuala Moore has been nominated as World Open Water Woman of the Year. Having been part of the successful team who crossed the Bering Strait earlier this year the nomination caps a very satisfying 2013 for Nuala.
The World Open Water Swimming Association selects it’s nominees from “individuals with exceptionally inspirational exploits, histories and lifestyles. These individuals best embody the spirit of open water swimming, possess the sense of adventure, tenacity and perseverance that open water swimmers are known for, and have positively influenced the world of open water swimming”.
Steven Munatones from the association said of Nuala:
“Given the criteria, the choice of Nuala Moore was a slam dunk. Not only did she participate in ice swims around the world, swimming 1 km in water that was near 0°C, but she also was an integral part of the Bering Strait Swim and the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association with its busy summer of North Channel crossings. And true to her nature, she was always taking interest in and care of others on her team. “
