Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming Certificate of Merit

The International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame issues Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming Certificates of Merit and place each person's record of achievement in the Hall of Fame's archives. "They look stunning," says Hall of Fame inductee Ned Denison. "I received one in the official International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame blue binder."

"When people do the Triple Crown, they are in a very special club...only 101 people in history have earned this recognition," explains Steven Munatones, Vice President of the Hall Fame. "The fee is US$50 which is a donation to help offset running the Federation. If swimmers are interested in receiving their Certificate of Merit, they can contact Dale Petranech, the IMSHOF secretary and inductee in both the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame and the International Swimming Hall of Fame at dpetranech@aol.com."

  3. Hello,
    researching on a greek swimmer named Jason Zirganos I found, that he may indeed be the first Triple Crown swimmer: http://openwaterpedia.com/index.php?title=Jason_Zirganos_-_Swimming_Hall_of_Fame_Honoree

    What do you think?
    Kind regards from Heidelberg, Germany

  4. Jason Zirganos did not complete the circumnavigation of Manhattan Island. This was confirmed by the historians of the NYC Swim, the governing body of swims around Manhattan Island.
