DescriptionThe International Museum of Swimming and Hall of Fame provides visitors with a unique perspective about the importance of swimming in the history of mankind, from times when swimming was an essential survival skill practices universally by all civilizations to swimming as a sport in the modern Olympic Games. While it is true that swimming is a sport, unlike basketball and football, swimming is a skill that save your life as well as well as others. And the lack of knowledge of what other sport results in over 500,000 lives a year? That's the number of lives lost due to drowning around the world each year. At the International Swimming Hall of Fame you will learn how the ability to swim by the ancient Greeks helped them defeated the Persians in 480 BC, about how the Roman obsession with swimming was blamed for the collapse of the Roman Empire; why Africans and Native Americans were believed to be the greatest swimmers in the world until the middle of the 19th Century and how these people lost the art of swimming; why swimming was not practiced by women in the western world until the start of the 20th century and how swimming played a major role in the women's rights movement; did you know Ben Franklin, John Quincy Adams, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan all were outstanding swimmers? All this and the world's finest collection of Olympic medals, swimwear, films, books and memorabilia related to the sports of swimming, diving, synchronized swimming, water polo and open water swimming.
