Tita Llorens Bagur won the 2017 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year, but her 101.6 km swim between the Spanish mainland and Cala Colodar on Ibiza across the Canal de Ibiza in 36 hours 16 minutes at the age of 49 was even more impressive.

A great interview in both Spanish and English with Open Water News is posted here.

Llorens is shown above with other WOWSA Award winners Adrian Sarchet and James Harrison of Sea Donkey in Guernsey (World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year), Antonio Argüelles of Mexico (World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year), and Jaimie Monahan of the USA (World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year).
