Last year's World Rowing Para-rowing Crew of the Year Erik Horrie of Australia has been nominated for the 2015 award after he maintained his unbeaten run which stretches back to his silver medal at London 2012.
Horrie is one of three nominees for this year’s prize, part of the 2015 World Rowing Awards, announced by the World Rowing Federation (FISA).
The 36-year-old claimed his third straight AS single sculls gold at the recent World Para-rowing Championships in Aiguebelette, France, staged alongside the able-bodied competition.
He will go up against compatriots Gavin Bellis and Kathryn Ross, winners of every major TA double sculls race since 2013.
The duo also triumphed in Aiguebelette, matching the achievement of Horrie by sealing a hat-trick of consecutive world titles.
Ross, a silver medallist at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games, and Bellis will be bidding to be crowned World Rowing Para-rowing Crew of the Year for the second time after they achieved the feat in 2013.
The other athlete nominated for the award is Israel’s Moran Samuel, who bounced back after earning silver at the 2014 World Championships in Amsterdam to win gold at this year's event in the AS women's single sculls race.
A public nomination process formed the shortlist for the award, before the finalists were then decided by the FISA Council.
The World Rowing Awards comprise of five categories, including the best men's and women's crew, the best Para-rowing crew, the best coaches and a special award for service to rowing.
The winners of each prize are due to be revealed on November 20, before they each will receive their award on November 21 in Sarasota in Florida at the 2015 World Rowing Coaches Conference gala dinner.
