Janet Evans Finishes 2nd In Mission Viejo Swim Meet

MISSION VIEJO, Calif. (AP) — Janet Evans has finished second in her heat of the 800-meter freestyle as part of the 40-year-old swimmer’s comeback for the London Olympics.

She was timed in 8 minutes, 46.89 seconds Thursday at the Fran Crippen Memorial Swim Meet of Champions. Evans lowered her Olympic trials cut time of 8:49.05 with just more than two months until the trials that will decide the U.S. team.

Evans finished second to 16-year-old Brooke Lorentzen, who swam a personal-best time of 8:45.69. Olympian Chloe Sutton posted a time of 8:26.68 to win the first of eight heats at the pool in Mission Viejo.

Chad La Tourette, fifth in the 1,500 free at last year’s world championships, won his heat of the men’s mile in 15:09.55.
