Beth Yudovin Honored by the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame
Denison explains, “Yudovin has enjoyed two careers in the sport. For the first 25+ years, she served as her husband’s manager and crew chief. Beth and David Yudovin, a dual inductee in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame and International Swimming Hall of Fame, traveled around the globe planning, plotting, organizing and accomplishing dozens of unprecedented solo marathon swims in Japan, Mexico, Indonesia, New Zealand, Azores, Portugal, California’s Channel Islands and in Africa including Cape Verde plus São Tomé and Príncipe. With Beth in the escort boat and David in the water, they also completed established marathon swims in Tahiti, Hawaii, across the English Channel and the Strait of Gibraltar.
Beth’s second career involved serving on IMSHOF’s Executive Committee since 2014. She chaired the Committee, hosted two Induction and Awards Ceremonies and most recently managed its finances.”
She received the Dale Petranech Award for Services to the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in 2020 and is now one of the few husband-and-wife duos in the Hall of Fame – a well-deserved honor for the lifelong marathon swimming enthusiast.
