The Dutch Ladies First record-setting two-way English Channel record was among the 15 selected nominees for the 2012 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year.

The award is meant to honor efforts and swims – successful or not, short or long – that (1) best embody the spirit of open water swimming, (2) are representative of the sense of adventure, tenacity and perseverance that open water swimmers are known for, and (3) have most positively influenced the world of open water swimming.

Their nomination from the World Open Water Swimming Association reads,

Swim fast, swim straight. Over and back, flip turn at Cape Gris Nez. Don’t look up, just follow the boat. That is what the Dutch Ladies First set out to do as they traversed the English Channel on their two-way record swim under the guidance of Richard Broer. Cognizant of the newly established American ladies record of 18 hours 55 minutes, the sextet under the guidance of coach Richard Broer and Captain Lance Oram on the Sea Satin went for broke. The collective efforts of Margot Stenveld, Desirée Emmen, Janneke Harmsen-Bakker, Jasmijn Ruijgrok, Gemma Middendorp and Linda Hoogendam established a new two-way all-female English Channel record in 18 hours 22 minutes. For their ability to keep up the pace (9:57 on first leg, 8:25 on second leg), for the fastest women’s relay to ever cross the English Channel twice, the two-way swim of Dutch Ladies First is a worthy nominee for the 2012 WOWSA Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year..”
