Swim England has revealed the names of the first inductees into its Swim England Hall of Fame.

A total of 26 athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers have been named to the Hall of Fame, which was created as part of national governing body's 150th anniversary celebrations.

The first batch of names includes 21 people who have been honoured posthumously. The remaining five are swimmers Sharron Davies, Duncan Goodhew and Steve Parry plus synchronised Swimming stalwart Jenny Gray and volunteer Alan Donlan. In all, the first batch of inductees includes 12 former Olympians.

Jane Nickerson, Swim England CEO said: "In our 150th anniversary year, we’re delighted to reveal the names of the first people to be inducted into our Hall of Fame.

"There were many wonderful nominations submitted and it was extremely hard to narrow it down to those who we’ve included so far.

"Although many of those honoured this time are sadly no longer with us, the pioneering role they played in helping to develop our sports or the success they had as coaches and athletes should never be forgotten.

"We applaud them for their dedication to swimming, diving, synchronised swimming and water polo and hope they act as an inspiration to others.

"We look forward to building on these initial entrants into the Hall of Fame over the years to come."

The Hall of Fame will now see be opened for nominations from members of the public, with athletes, coaches and volunteers across England being considered for submission.

The next names included in the Hall of Fame will be announced in May 2020.
