Illinois Swimming has previously announced establishment of an Illinois Swimming Hall of Fame. With your help, it's now time to find some honorees. Finding Olympic and World Championship swimmers and coaches for the most recent, 2000 - 2016, period is easy but, as the years fall back, it is tougher to find good information and memories.
To fill in the gaps we are "crowd sourcing" with the members of ISI. We are specifically looking for Olympians (swimmers) from 1896 - 1996. The info you can provide is very simple: Name, Olympic year, event(s), Illinois club represented.
For example===> Adolph Kiefer, 1936/Berlin, 100 Back, Lake Shore Athletic Club.
