2019 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year Nomination[edit]

Dr. Fuzeau's Iron Iceman was nominated for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year award as follows:

In mid-winter in Volendam, Netherlands, Dr. Alexandre Fuzeau completed an Ice Mile in 36 minutes 27 seconds in 4.97°C water. While there were 419 Ice Miles successfully completed to date, Dr. Fuzeau only took another 6 months to become an Iron Iceman. The 53-year-old French extreme athlete and co-organizer of the IISA France Ice Swimming Championship, completed a 14 hour 48 minute Ironman Triathlon in Hamburg, Germany in August. This quick turnaround from training to be an ice swimmer and working as an event director to preparing for a full Ironman was the fastest extreme sport transition in the open water swimming community this year – or ever. For expanding his extreme sport resume and setting a Guinness World Record for doing both an Ice Mile and a full Ironman Triathlon within one calendar year, for continuing to travel the world to satisfy his insatiable taste for adventure while doing research and publishing papers on ice swimming, for participating in the International Ice Swimming World Championship winning two silver medals in the 50m and 100m breaststroke and two bronze medals in the 50m butterfly and the 500m freestyle while training to be an Ironman triathlete, the Iron Iceman achievement by Dr. Alexandre Fuzeau is a worthy nominee for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year.
