FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, June 20. OLYMPIANS and legendary names in aquatic sports flocked to Fort Lauderdale recently for the annual induction ceremony for the International Swimming Hall of Fame. Though the event received headlines earlier this month when Chuck Wielgus withdrew his name from the list of inductees, the ceremony was able to cast that headline aside and welcome several notable names into the prestigious family of honorees.

Olympic swimming champions Agnes Kovacs and Tom Malchow were on hand to receive their sashes and a commemorative trophy. Water polo player Carlo Silipo, open water swimmer Jon Erikson and famed swimming coach Jozsef Nagy also received tributes.

ISHOF put together a video full of photos from the event. How many legendary aquatic sports personalities can you spot in the video? Show off your knowledge in the Reaction Time comments section below.
