Watermans Jamie Mitchell nominated for adventurer of the year
Voting ends January 15, 2011
Orange County, CA, December 14, 2010 – World Champion Jamie Mitchell has been nominated as one of ten elite athletes and explorers considered worthy of the title, 2010 Adventurer of the Year. This year’s field includes ocean crossing rowers, extreme climbers, sailors, adventurers and even a famous tracker. However, only one will be crowned on January 15th.
Mitchell’s nomination rests on the strong shoulders responsible for his nine consecutive Molokai to Oahu victories. What sets him apart is his dedication and consistency to the endeavor and the inconstancy of the terrain. “Paddling is not like any other sport.” Says Watermans’ Pete Stirling, “You can show up to the same event year after year, but it will never be the same race… Everything changes, from the conditions to the competition, and a paddlers ability to deal with the unknown is his most important asset.” Mitchell’s unwavering performance represents unparallel ability to adapt.
Voting is already underway. Watermans Applied Science and the rest of Jamie’s sponsors encourage you to vote for Jamie. Individuals can vote daily.
