Janet Evans first made headlines in 1988 as she brought home 4 Olympic Medals after competing as part of the US Olympic Team in Seoul, South Korea; where she not only competed in the 400 and 800 free and 400 IM – but Janet also set a world record in the 400 Metre Freestyle event, finishing in 4:03.85 – all before she turned 18. Evans was one of the youngest to compete in the Seoul Olympics, standing 5’6 and weighing just under 100 lbs when soaking wet – later receiving praise from The New York Times for defying the odds and “Swimming with boundless energy” that allowed the teenager to set rise to stardom while most of her peers were still weighing Post-Secondary School options. In this video, we’re taking a deep dive into the infamous “windmill” swimming style that Janet brought to the freestyle events because while many argued that swimming with a perfectly straight arm recovery isn’t proper technique – could this unusual technique be Evans’ secret to her successful career as an Olympic Athlete and her decision to return to competitive swimming nearly two decades after her last race.
