Three new members to be inducted into Aquatic Wall of Fame

Tonight, at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, three names will be added to the City of London’s Aquatic Wall of Fame. Maggie Mac Neil will be inducted in the category of Olympic Athlete. Charis Huddle and Jillian Best will be inducted in the category of Achievers of Distinction in Aquatics.

“London is a sports city through and through and it’s so important for us to recognize the trailblazers who come from our community,” says Acting Mayor Josh Morgan. “The Aquatic Wall of Fame provides an opportunity for us to celebrate past and present athletes and the contributions they have made to our community. I’d like to congratulate this year’s inductees on their amazing achievements."

“The Wall of Fame serves as a permanent inspiration to athletes as well as visitors to the Canada Games Aquatic Centre,” says Lynn Loubert, Senior Manager, Recreation and Sport. “We are extremely proud to honour this year’s inductees.  It is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the athletes for their time, dedication and commitment to aquatics sport.”

The Wall of Fame was developed in November 1992 to recognize athletes who have made a significant contribution to aquatics while representing London. The wall was dedicated in memory of Judge Allan Guthrie, a freestyle swimmer at Western University who held the Ontario university record in 1965. 

The Aquatic Wall of Fame can be found on the main level corridor of the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. Individuals are recognized with a plaque on the Wall.
