    Sri Chinmoy (India) and Ned Denison (Ireland) were inducted as Honor Administrators. The Faros Maratón in Croatia and the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association were inducted as Honor Organisations.

    Drury Gallagher (USA) is this year’s recipient of the Irving Davids-Captain Roger Wheeler Memorial Award while Chad Hundeby (USA), and Des Renford (Australia) were recipients of the International Swimming Hall of Fame Finalists Certificate of Merit while Eleanor Studley Hurd (USA) was recipient of the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Certificate of Merit.
