The International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame issues Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming Certificates of Merit and place each person’s record of achievement in the Hall of Fame’s archives. “They look stunning,” says Hall of Fame inductee Ned Denison. “I received one in the official International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame blue binder.”

When people do the Triple Crown, they are in a very special club…only 101 people in history have earned this recognition,” explains Steven Munatones, Vice President of the Hall Fame. “The fee is US$50 which is a donation to help offset running the Federation. If swimmers are interested in receiving their Certificate of Merit, they can contact Dale Petranech, the IMSHOF secretary and inductee in both the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame and the International Swimming Hall of Fame at [email protected].”
