2016 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year nomination

Stochino was nominated for the World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year award by the World Open Water Swimming Association.

Edoardo Stochino has trained for years in the shadows of more renowned Italian stallions of the open water world. He has competed in races around the world and represented his native Italy in short races and the longest on the professional marathon swimming circuit. But 2016 saw Stochino finally break out and win his first overall title on the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix. He finished second in the 33 km Ohrid Lake Swimming Marathon in Macedonia and in the 32 km Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean in Canada, and ended the season with a gutsy performance in the 36 km Maratona del Golfo Capri-Napoli in Italy. The 29-year-old stuck with his year-round training program and never gave up on himself as he finally reached his goal on top of the Grand Prix. For his commitment to the sport and to his national team, for his sustained focus on training, and for his genuine love of racing in lakes, seas and oceans, Edoardo Stochino is a worthy nominee for the 2016 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
