2013 Golden Goggles Awards Nominees Revealed

USA Swimming has announced their nominees for the 2014 Golden Goggles awards: the organization’s biggest annual awards spectacular.

This year’s event will take place on November 24th, 2013 at the JW Marriott and LA Live in Los Angeles, California.

You can vote online through this link.

We’ll give our choices later, but for now, these are the nominees that you can choose from. There’s not a whole lot of surprises on the list, though it does highlight something that I think not a lot of us really processed until now: the nominees for Male and Female Athletes of the Year are only individual gold medalists from the World Championships. There were only two men and two women who took individual gold medals at the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona.
