Brent Rutemiller  
2008 ISHOF Service Award

Brent Rutemiller is the Chief Executive Officer of Sports Publications International and Publisher of Swimming World Magazine, SWIM Magazine and Swimming Technique Magazine. Under his tenure, Brent re-branded each media vehicle under one print title, Swimming World Magazine and then re-launched all three magazines as separate digital downloads. Shortly thereafter, he launched Swimming World Radio and Swimming World TV as online properties. The Morning Swim Show is SwimmingWorld TV’s flagship program, which streams weekday mornings. For the last two and a half years, Brent has used his publications and other media to help raise the visibility of ISHOF and show that the history and legacy of the swimming sports are worth preserving.

In addition to regular articles in SwimmingWorldMagazine, Brent regularly streams segments originating from ISHOF,
featuring Bob Duenkel and BruceWigo on SwimmingWorld TV™. Brent and his Sports Publications International have
played an important role in increasing ISHOF’s membership by over 300 percent in the past two years. We appreciate
Brent’s hard work and dedication to swimming.
