Seoul - 1988
09/08/2009

I started adding a couple of recordings from the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul.  These were mixed in among the 1992 recordings.  I had forgotten how late in the year the Seoul Games were.  They started on the 17th of September and ended the first week in October.  I think the NFL football schedule got all fouled up for three weeks.  One of the recordings is very poor quality and I wouldn't have kept it at all except it has Janet Evans winning the 800m freestyle.  I think Janet was the only gold medalist on the women's swimming team that year.   Janet was in her prime with her windmill stroke.  At one point the commentators talked about how she was eating anything in sight when she came for interviews as she had a hard time keeping weight on.  I get so jealous when I hear those kinds of stories.
