Abbeycroft Leisure - St Edmundsbury Sports Awards 2009

I am delighted and very honoured to have been nominated for the "Sports Personality of the Year" award at the 3rd annual Abbeycroft Leisure St Edmundsbury Sports Awards 2009. The event will be held at the Bury St Edmunds Corn Exchange on Sunday September 27th, 2009.

It was won last year by fellow open water swimmer Steffanie Biller of West Suffolk Swimming Club and Germany. I was runner up at the inaugural event held in 2007 following my first swim of The English Channel. The entry listed all my swim achievements from my 2007 channel swim up to the UK Cold Water Swimming Championships in January 2009.

I will update the blog after the award ceremony to let you know how I did, however, I am just very proud to have been nominated in the first place.
