This morning I read how Janet Evans, the queen of distance swimming in the United States, has returned to competitive swimming with an eye toward the 2012 Olympic trials. In her first meet, after reporting that she has been training for about six months, she established two world records for her age group (35-39). She was pleased with her progress and will continue on this adventure. A mother of two, she joins Amanda Beard and Dara Torres as past Olympians who have taken time out of the sport to start families and have returned to challenge the most elite athletes. Torres was successful in 2008……it will be interesting to see how Evans, who will be 40 at the time of the trials, will do. Regardless, she is a testament to all who continue to challenge personal goals throughout their lives.
