Jacques Amyot and his statue commemorating his crossing of lac St-Jean
Jacques Amyot is an Honour Swimmer from Canada inducted in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in 1995.

Amyot was the first person to swim across lac St-Jean in Quebec, Canada in 1955. His efforts lead to the formation of la Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean, one of the world’s longest and best organized professional marathon swimming races. On 23 July 1955, seven swimmers signed up for the first crossing of la Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean, but only Amyot finished the 26 km (16-mile) swim in 11 hours 32 minutes.
