Janet Evans

Standard

There once was an athlete named Janet —
One of the fastest swimmers on the planet.
When asked why she did it
“I’m clumsy,” she admitted,
On land — but in water, I don’t panic.”


True story:  My oldest daughter wrote to Janet Evans, 14 years ago as part of a school project and asked her why she started swimming. Janet wrote back and told her it was because she was a klutz on land.
