Klaus DiBiasi (Italy)
 Klaus DiBiasi, Diver
One in a Thousand Member Story

Klaus DiBiasi (Italy), ISHOF Honoree and an Olympic medalist in three consecutive Olympics.  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, DiBiasi said, “ What I remember most about the Hall of Fame is the first time I came to compete in the early 1970’s and the important people who really showed a big friendship to all of us.   I feel a huge gratitude to all of them who really stepped in for our sport and organized the International Hall of Fame Diving Meet so we could come to Fort Lauderdale all those years."
 

Read more about DiBiasi's diving background and his dominance of the platform from 1964 to 1976.

 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.”
