    About Janet Evans

    Janet Evans is a three-time Olympian and four-time individual Olympic gold medalist who is considered the greatest female distance swimmer of all time. She was named the Female World Swimmer of the Year by "Swimming World" magazine in 1987, 1989, and 1990, and she won the Sullivan Award (top amateur athlete in the United States) in 1989. By end of her career, she held six U.S. records, three world records, five Olympic medals (including four gold), and 45 U.S. national titles. She won the 400- and 800-meter free at the U.S. National Championships 12 times each, the most national titles in one event by any swimmer in the 100-year history of the event. Evans' Olympic career ended in 1996, when she was honored with the prestigious task of passing the Olympic torch to Muhammad Ali, who lit the cauldron.

  • 1/17/2010 excellent material

    2 Review Stars By John S.

    The workout material is presented in an excellent format for an advanced swimmer. This isn't for a beginning/intermediate swimmer because the material is too advanced for the average person. I feel that there should be a DvD with this book to provide more visual pointers. I feel that it should be available in a CD format or a download.
