Legends of Australian Sport
The annual elevation of one Sport Australia Hall of Fame Member 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, 42 Members have been elevated to Legend status and are now officially recognised as a Legend of Australian Sport.
A Sport Australia Hall of Fame Member must be 15 years retired before being considered for elevation to the category of official Legend of Australian Sport.
