Janet EVANS: biografía

Janet Evans is likely the greatest female long-distance swimmer of all time. She first came to prominence at the 1986 Goodwill Games, and she entered the 1988 Olympics as the world record holder in the 400 metres, 800 metres, and 1,500 metres. She did not disappoint, improving her own world record in winning the 400 metres in addition to taking gold medals in the 800 metres and the 400 metre individual medley. On her second Olympic appearance in 1992 she successfully defended her 800 metres title but suffered her first defeat in the 400 metres since 1986 when she placed second to Dagmar Hase (GER). Evans competed at the 1996 Olympics but was past her prime and failed to win a medal in the 800 metre freestyle, her only event at Atlanta. Her greatest years were from 1987-89, when she set two world records over 400 metres, two at 800 metres, and two at 1,500 metres. Between 1986-1995 she won 25 of 27 major international races over 400 metres and 22 of 23 over 800 metres. Evans’s world records for the 800, and 1,500 metre freestyle events were not bettered for 20 years, and her 400 metre world record was only broken in 2006.
