Jason Lezak, Swimmer
One in a Thousand Member Story
Jason Lezak (USA), ISHOF Honoree and called the man who made the greatest relay swim of all time, is special. He is One in a Thousand!
When asked why he wanted to join the International Swimming Hall of Fame’s One in A Thousand Club, Lezak said, “I made my first trip to the Hall of Fame when I was 18. Although I already had Olympic dreams, this added inspiration to want to achieve like so many of the greats from our past. No matter what sport I did, I was always appreciated the history that created the opportunities for me to succeed.
It was an honor to be inducted last year and to now have a display for all the visitors to see. It’s very humbling to be a small part of swimming history.”
