ISHOF YEARBOOK GOES DIGITAL
FORT LAUDERDALE, The International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF) today announced that its 2012 Yearbook is now available online, in an Adobe Flash format, and freely accessible to the public free of charge. It can be found on the Hall of Fame’s website at:
“We are very pleased to make our yearbook available to the public in a digital format,” says Bruce Wigo, ISHOF’s CEO. “We look at this book as a combination of a yearbook and a history magazine, dedicated exclusively to swimming.”
In addition to information on the honorees award recipients from 2012, the yearbook covers ISHOF’s year in review. With 135 pages, it also contains a number of interesting historical articles, including: the history of Olympic medals; Swimming In The Victorian Era; the 1964 Olympic Games; Sweden’s Gift to Diving: the Brandstens; and the Alcazar Hotel Pool.
“The history of swimming is absolutely amazing,” says Wigo. “Its our mission not only to promote swimming and lead everyone to appreciate just how valuable swimming is as both a life skill and Olympic sport, but its importance and impact on the cultural, social, religious, economic and even military history of the world.”
Because of its size, the yearbook may take several minutes to load, depending upon the speed of your Internet connection.
The first ISHOF yearbook appeared in 1965, with the opening of the Hall of Fame and continued through the mid 1970’s. Since 2006, the yearbook has been one of the benefits of an ISHOF membership. A limited number of the 2012 yearbook can be purchased for $10 plus $4.95 for shipping and handling. For more information call 954-462-6536.
