This Weekend’s International Swimming Hall of Fame Induction presented by Visit Lauderdale is now Officially SOLD OUT!

The events will be combined into one evening on October 9th, and will honor only those living in the United States due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.  The evening will honor 14 people, including 5 ISHOF Inductees, 4 Masters International Swimming Hall of Fame (MISHOF),  4 Paragon Award winners, and 1 Lifetime Achievement award.

The International honorees and award winners who will not be recognized this year due to travel restrictions, will be celebrated next year (2022) on October 14 and 15th in Fort Lauderdale.

Brent Rutemiller, CEO of ISHOF announced the decision to move forward when he sent the following letter to those being honored.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions in travel to the United States, we have made the tough decision to induct only USA Honorees this year on October 9th, in Fort Lauderdale.

We have also decided to induct the Masters International Swimming Hall of Fame USA Honorees and honor select USA Paragon ISHOF Award winners that are associated with the competitive sports on the same evening to create a meaningful and manageable three hour event.

As a result, all international honorees and other award winners will now be inducted with the class of 2022 on October 14 and 15th  2022, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

This is the current list of individuals who we will honor on October 9th, 2021 (This Year)
