Blue Back Sport Royalty: Janet Evans

A little tidbit I picked up while watching the Michael Phelps Invitational (a.k.a. the Beijing Olympics). In a sport where world record durations last longer than the attention span of your typical seven year-old, the world record Evans set in the 800 meters in 1989 was just broken.

Let me repeat that: The world record Janet Evans set in the 800 meters STOOD FOR NINETEEN YEARS!

Sport Royalty, indeed.
