Charlotte Brynn, chairperson of the Vermont Open Water Swimming Hall of Fame, announced the 2020 inductees to the Vermont Open Water Swimming Hall Of Fame. She explains, “The Vermont Open Water Swimming Hall of Fame was established in 2016 and recognizes those Vermonters and those with substantial connections to Vermont who have achieved greatness in the open water and those who make significant , awe-inspiring contributions to their success.
The New England State of Vermont is situated in the northeast corner of USA and is one of the most tranquil and scenic states, boasting many pristine lakes that range in both size and elevation. Much of the appeal is the crystal clear waters, breathtaking mountains, wide open spaces, playful lakes and wonderful open water swimming community which consists of homegrown Vermonters and those with significant ties to Vermont. It is an honor to congratulate and welcome our new 2020 inductees.
