2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year[edit]

Antonio Argüelles and Adam Skolnick’s Travesía Interminable won the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Award:

His life reads like an adventure novel; his story could be made into a movie: a young charismatic boy from Mexico with an entrepreneurial talent finds his way to the halls of Stanford University in search of going to the Olympics. But his aquatic dreams are put on hold - temporarily - as he ventures out in the world and eventually finds success back to Mexico. His book, Travesía Interminable, or The Forever Swim in English, was written by Antonio Argüelles about his fascinating experiences en route to achieving the Oceans Seven at the age of 58. The 312-page book, co-authored by Adam Skolnick, describes his successes and the largely unseen obstacles that he had to overcome. For sharing his inner thoughts, worries and challenges, for describing his colorful, relentlessly goal-setting life, and for becoming the oldest man to achieve the Oceans Seven, the book Travesía Interminable by Antonio Argüelles and Adam Skolnick is a worthy nominee for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
