The IAAF started adding athletes in to the Hall of Fame two years ago when they announced the first 24 athletes. Last year the IAAF added another twelve athletes. 

For an athlete to be inducted in to the IAAF Hall of Fame he or she must meet a minimum requirement of 2 Olympic and World championship titles plus one world record. In addition, all athletes must be retired from sport of minimum of 10 years.
