Janet Evans?

Post by Laurie Conrad Kram » Thu, 06 May 1993 02:52:02


I finally got around to watching the tape I had made of the women's NCAA meet
that was on TV a few weeks ago.  As usual, lousy coverage - e.g., couldn't they
have edited something out and shown the *entire* 200 IM, instead of the last
75 yards???

Anyway, they didn't show nor mention Janet Evans, and I was wondering if anyone
knew what she was up to?  Has she graduated?  Is she still swimming?

A couple of years back, Janet Evans decided to quit Stanford and moved to
Texas to train for the 1992 Olympics.  She qualified for two events, the
800 free and 400 free.  She won the gold in the 800 and was a very close
second for the 400.  She didn't qualify for the I.M. event.  Last thing I
heard, she was assisting the swim team at USC.

Janet, as well as Summer gave up their eligibility to do endorsments,
that is make some money.  The NCAA makes it so that if you want to
do anything, even swim suit adds, you loose your rite to swim.  But, she
might be swimming in the normal USS, as well as Summer, actually Summer
was at NAtionals, do not remember if Janet was.  But, that is it.

        From last I heard, from a friend of Janet's here on the Illinois swim
team, she is retired and studying at the University of Texas.  Summer is
swimming USS and still attending Stanford.

I saw Janet Evans in Feb. or March at the USS meet in Cerritos, Calif.
She was swimming for the University of Southern California - so maybe
she's studying there now ?

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is USS?  Is it United States
Swimming?  If that was the case, what is a USS meet?  Who participates
in them?  Thanks.

        Yes that's what it stands for.  It is the governing body of swimming
in the United States.  A USS meet is a meet sanctioned by USS and is seperate
from college, high school, YMCA, and many dual meets, although I have been
at dual meets with my club team that were sanctioned so that the times would
count to use as entry times for other meets.
        People swim USS when they are out of their high school or college
seasons and before they enter high school.  I've seen four year olds in them
as well as 22 and 23 year olds (although I don't think there is an official
age limit as long as meets have a "senior division" which is usually 16+).
        The term USS team refers to many club and YMCA teams.  To be a top
swimmer you basically have to swim with a USS team when your school team isn't
practicing.

Janet Evans was training at the Univ. of Texas awhile ago.  However, last year
USC "stole" UT women's coach Mark Schubert, so maybe she followed him there.

Also remember many people (such as myself) swim/swam USS *while* they were
in season for their high school team... In fact... almost everyone here in
Massachusetts does.

In Rhode Island, the high school swimming is such a joke that most of
the only people who are making any decent times are swimming USS only or
both USS and h.s.. I am not sure if this is typical of other areas in
the Northeast, where swimming is not nearly as popular as in other areas
of the country.
