2020 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination
Kennedy led the Antarctica 2020 International Swim that was nominated for the 2020 WOWSA Awards in the World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year category with the following nomination: The Southern Ocean is at the bottom of the world surrounding the continent of Antarctica. Inhospitable to humans, but remarkably, Ger Kennedy organized a series of ice swims accessible around the ice-covered tundra to some of the most hardened ice swimmers on the planet. Antarctica 2020 International Swim was held inside the Antarctic Circle to celebrate Lynne Cox's pioneering Antarctica swim in 2002 and enable people to swim short distances or Polar Ice Miles. From Argentina, the Polar Swimming Quest set off by ship and stopped in the Bellingshausen Sea and the Weddell Sea over a few weeks. 12 swimmers entered the cold waters of Antarctica with bioprene only with three major swims safely recorded. Paul Eugen Dorin Georgescu set a world record in Hanusse Bay in 0.0°C water with 22 minute 44 second Zero Ice Mile. Two days later, Ger Kennedy swam another Zero Ice Mile in Paradise Bay in 0.53°C water and -1.10°C air in 34 minutes 2 seconds, and Cath Pendleton followed up 10 days later in Hanusse Bay with a 32:54 Zero Ice Mile in 0.03°C water and -3.2°C air. For safely organizing swims by Kathryn Pratschke, Redy Redfern, Dee Newell, Jane Hardy, Tiffiny Quinn, Michelle White, Una Campbell, Martina Ring, Anne O'Donovan, Matías Ola, and Alice Kelliher in Antarctica with the help of Sean Cullen and Dimcea Lulian Zamfir, for encouraging marine conservation awareness while encountering challenging conditions, and for enabling the extension of the known physical boundaries for everyone involved, the Antarctica 2020 International Swim by Ger Kennedy is a worthy nominee for the 2020 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
2019 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year Nomination
Kennedy was nominated for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year award with the following nomination:
Ger Kennedy, known as Dr. Ice, is among the most accomplished athletes in the world of extreme sports. After an eclectic professional career on dryland, Kennedy has transitioned his physical talents, grit and creativity to the ice swimming community. His innate charisma and buoyant personality make his ability to withstand incredibly cold conditions looks so easy. In addition to pushing himself in Under Ice Swims, Ice Baths, Polar Ice Miles, and Ice Mile Zero, he achieved the Ice Sevens Challenge by completing 7 different Ice Miles in Ireland, Norway, Siberia, Morocco, USA, and Australia that culminated in a 2,800-meter high altitude lake in Chile. He also helped organize open water events and Ironman triathlon swims in his native Ireland. For becoming the first man to complete the Ice Sevens, swimming's most extreme physiological, psychological and logistical challenge, for mentoring and inspiring swimmers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to achieve their own dreams, and for serving tirelessly and charismatically as an event director and ambassador of the sport, Ger Kennedy is a worthy nominee for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.

Antarctica Polar Zero Ice Mile
2 km at 0ºC
Kennedy joined the 2fer0 Club, swimmers who have completed a 2 km non-stop open water swim in water temperature at 0ºC that includes Lynne Cox (USA in 2004), Alexander Brylin (Russia, 2012), Andrey Sychyovv (Russia, 2012), and Henri Kaarma (Estonia, 2014).
Ice Sevens Challenge
The Ice Sevens Challenge or Ice Sevens is the ice swimming equivalent of the Oceans Seven. Created by Ger Kennedy and Steven Munatones, to achieve the Ice Sevens, a swimmer must complete a 1 km swim under standard ice swimming rules (i.e., no wetsuit and no neoprene hat) in a man-made pool or in the open water in the following locations:
o An Ice Mile swum below 5ºC (41ºF) in any location in Europe
o An Ice Mile swum below 5ºC (41ºF) in any location in Oceania
o An Ice Mile swum below 5ºC (41ºF) in any location in Asia
o An Ice Mile swum below 5ºC (41ºF) in any location in North America
o An Ice Mile swum below 5ºC (41ºF) in any location in Africa
o An Ice Mile swum below 5ºC (41ºF) in any location in South America
o An Ice Mile swum below 5ºC (41ºF) in any Polar location at 60º south or below or 60º north or above
With one important caveat, one of the seven Ice Miles must be a documented Zero Ice Mile (defined as a solo mile swim performed at below 1ºC).

2016 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year nomination
Kennedy was nominated for the 2016 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year award.
Ger Kennedy is one of the world's grittiest, guttiest swimmers specializing in The Ice. His phenomenal 52-meter Under Ice Swimming challenge in -1ºC (40.2ºF) water in Yakutsk, Russia is an example of how the Irish ice swimmer loves to push his body and mind in myriad ways - and help others do the same. He completed an hour Ice Bath Challenge and raced in various Ice Swimming Championship events from above the Arctic Circle to Tyumen to Lake Windermere. He also tirelessly organized the Great Wicklow 10 km Swim, the Petrified Forest 6 km Open Sea Swim, the Dublin Night Swim on behalf of the East Coast of Ireland Open Water. Whether it is Ironman swims in his native Ireland or ice swimming around the world, Kennedy lends a helping hand, a friendly eye, and a watchful eye for those who seek his advice. He also conceived of the Ice Sevens Challenge, the cold water swimming equivalent of the Oceans Seven. For his under-freezing-water swim in the Lena River, for helping others achieve their open water dreams, for his creativity in establishing the Ice Sevens, Ger Kennedy is a worthy nominee for the 2016 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
