The relentlessly energetic Pádraig Mallon won the 2013 Senior Individual Sports Personality Award at the 2013 Newry and Mourne Sports Awards ceremony.

Mallon, the 2013 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year, is one of the few people in the world who have completed an Ice Mile and a full triathlon, and one of the few people in history who have completed an English Channel and North Channel crossing in the same season.
