Sarah Sjostrom, Adam Peaty, Aurelie Muller & Marc-Antoine Olivier Top Euro 2017 Poll

Adam Peaty presses on with his pioneering mission - by Patrick B. Kraemer ... with an image that was our SwimVortex photo of the year, Peaty proving that while he cannot walk on water, he can swim on dryland ...

The jubilee 10th edition of the LEN Awards were topped by Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom as best woman swimmer and Great Britain’s Adam Peaty, who retains the top man’s prize he claimed in 2016. France’s surge in Open water was recognised too, Aurelie Muller and Marc-Antoine Olivier taking top honours.

“It was a challenge to pick the best ones in each discipline as European athletes amassed piles of medals at the World Championships in 2017” LEN President Paolo Barelli commented the voting. “We are really proud of our greats who didn’t stop showing their class, making Europe the most successful continent again.”
