One in a Thousand Member Story
Tom Gompf, ISHOF Honoree and 1964 Olympic medalist is special. He is One in a Thousand!
When asked why he wanted to join the International Swimming Hall of Fame’s One in A Thousand Club, Gompf said, “It’s almost reverent to me to be able to walk through the Hall and to see the history of our sport. To be able to visit the museum and see all our friends, each time I am there. Even today when I am at the Hall, it is always thrilling to be able to relive my career, as well as the careers of all the other greats in our sport! Tom is One in a Thousand!
