"A worthy nominee"

"It is fantastic to be recognised by my peers in the global aquatic community. The sport of open water swimming is growing every year, despite the dangers such as hypothermia, sharks, pollution and shipping traffic," said Yach, who holds the record for the most crossings to Robben Island - 67 at last count.

Durbanite and Midmar Mile race director Wayne Riddin is also nominated for his work in creating an online social sharing capability for the world's largest competitive open water race.
