2012 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year Nomination
Chiang's nomination for the 2012 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year read:
Morrie Chiang thinks big. Gigantically humungous. Chiang imagines an open water swimming world on a scale larger than anyone else in the world. His expectations and ability to execute the world’s largest open water swimming event are off the charts and unprecedented. Chiang’s planning, preparation, and precautions are the threads that weave together the remarkable Sun Moon Lake International Swimming Carnival (Jih Yueh Tan in Taiwanese) where over 25,000 individuals participate in a 3.3 km cross-lake swim in central Taiwan. The swim is not a competitive race; it is a mass participation extravaganza that is the largest celebration of open water swimming on Planet Earth. For his ability to motivate thousands to swim, for his ability to organize a safe environment for people from all ages and walks of life, for his imagination to think big, Morrie Chiang is a worthy nominee as the 2012 WOWSA Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
