2018 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year Nomination[edit]

He was nominated for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year by the World Open Water Swimming Association:
Yaroslav Pronin is just plain fast - especially in a pool, preferably very cold. The 26-year-old Belarus native set a world record in the 25m butterfly at the Jelgava, Latvias Roni Cup in 12.23, in the 100m freestyle at the 2018 Winter Swimming World Championships in Tallinn, Estonia in 54:38, and in the 200m freestyle at the Russian Pacific Open Cup in Vladivostok, Russia in 2:02:59. These are all mind-boggling speedy in cold water considering there are no flip turns or dive starts in these races. Pronin demonstrated his speed by handily winning the 25m, 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle races and the 25m butterfly, and finished 2nd in the 25m and 50m breaststroke, and 6th in the 100m breaststroke at the 11th Winter Swimming World Championships on March 6th-11th in Tallinn, Estonia. For his raw speed in the cold, for winning 674 total points on the International Winter Swimming World Cup circuit, and for setting age group records in the 25m freestyle (11.26), 50m freestyle (24.87), 100m freestyle (54.38), 200m freestyle (2:02.59), and 25m butterfly (12.23) while representing Belarus and the Winter Swimming Club Belgart well in Latvia, Russia, United Kingdom, China, Sweden, and Estonia, Yaroslav Pronin of Belarus is a worthy nominee for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
