The Tacoma News Tribune has selected a NOWSA swimmer for its 2015 Adventurer of the Year. Swimmer Andrew Malinak completed three NOWSA swims this summer, including the Bert Thomas Swim (June), a Bainbridge Island Circumnavigation (August), and the Strait of Juan de Fuca (September). Malinak holds this distinction along with seven other outdoor athletes completing outstanding triathlons, rowing events, cross-country walks, mountain cycling, and endurance runs.

The full article can be found at the News Tribune’s website: 2015 Adventurers of the Year.

The News Tribune originally covered Malinak’s swim from Tacoma to Seattle in an article on 6 June 2015 and a follow-up on 13 June 2015.

Congratulations, and we look forward to many more NOWSA swimmers undertaking equally worthy feats in the coming years.
