Hall of Fame

About the Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to recognize the accomplishments of the many athletes competing in and promoting Senior Olympics at the local, regional, state and national level. The Hall of Fame also inducts individuals who have provided Meritorious Service to the organization in endeavors other than the athletic competition.

Each year since its inception in 2007 (with the exception of 2011 & 2017), Ohio Senior Olympics has inducted a class into the Hall of Fame. The new class is inducted into the Hall of Fame during a ceremony held during The Ohio Senior Olympic State Games competition.
