The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Hall of Fame Class of 2019 induction ceremony will be held on Friday, Nov. 1 during a ceremony in conjunction with the all-alumni U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team Reunion in Colorado Springs.
Red carpet arrivals, interviews and the induction awards dinner will be open to the media.
The members of the Class will be announced on Monday, Sept. 23. Finalists were announced in August and a public vote to help determine the inductees concuded earlier this month. (In addition to the public vote that ends Sept. 3, U.S. Olympians and Paralympians and the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic family also vote on the inductees.)
Additionally, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Hall of Fame nominating committee will select two legends, one coach and one special contributor for induction.
Opening in early 2020, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs will become the new permanent home for the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Hall of Fame. Read more about current Hall of Fame members at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum’s Digital Museum.
Starting in 2019, the Hall of Fame will see increased Paralympic representation to reflect the burgeoning contributions of U.S. athletes to the Paralympic Movement, and now reflects the U.S. Team sizes at the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
