Martha Norelius was an American pool and open water swimmer who was inducted in the International Swimming Hall of Fame for winning a gold medal in the 400-meter freestyle at the 1924 Olympics and two gold medals in the 1928 Olympics. She was suspended from amateur competition in 1929 for giving an exhibition in the same pool with professional swimmers, so she turned professional and won US$10,000 in the 16 km (10-mile) Wrigley Marathon in Toronto. She was inducted in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in 1984 as an Honour Swimmer.
