The Golden Age of Swimming: A Picture History of the Sport & Pools That Changed America
Bruce Wigo has been the innovative and tireless President and Chief Executive Officer of the International Swimming Hall of Fame since 2005. He is lawyer who has achieved success in turning around financially troubled non-profit businesses.
In 1991, he took over as the Executive Director of USA Water Polo and helped bail out the nearly bankrupt sport's federation. His work laid the groundwork for the re-emergence of American water polo on the international scene. In his thirteen years as the Executive Director, Wigo increased membership from fewer than 8,000 members to more than 30,000 members. He also more than tripled the annual budget to over US$3.5 million and raised over US$1.5 million for the establishment of a water polo national training center in Los Alamitos, California.
