Did you ever wonder where you can find a place where all swimming history comes together forming one entity stored forever?

You can find here swimming heroes starting with Duke Kahanamoku and Johnny Weissmuller, Mark Spitz all the way to Alexander Popov, Michael Phelps and beyond.
The International Swimming Hall of Fame is right next to the home place of the Fort Lauderdale Swim Team (FLST) which used to be headed by the former Olympic coach Jack Nelson.
