Legends of Australian Sport
The annual elevation of a Sport Australia Hall of Fame Member/s to Legend status within the Sport Australia Hall of Fame is the most prestigious sporting honour that can be bestowed on an Australian.
Elevation provides the opportunity to celebrate and honour a Member who has distinguished themselves at the absolute highest level and whose achievements are considered part of Australian folklore. Importantly, this public recognition provides the opportunity to re-tell their remarkable story and inspire a whole new generation of Australians. Since 1993, 46 Members have been elevated to Legend status and are now officially recognised as a Legend of Australian Sport.
Sport Australia Hall of Fame Members must be 15 years retired before being considered for elevation to Legend of Australian Sport.
The annual elevation of Legend/s is voted by the Sport Australia Hall of Fame Board based on recommendations by the Selection Committee.
