In conversation with Janet Evans.

Janet Evans is a Vice-Chair of Los Angeles’ bid for the 2024 Olympic Games, and Chair of its Athletes’ Commission.

The LA native is a three-time Olympic athlete, and four-time gold medallist, having won medals in the pool at Seoul ’88 and Barcelona ’92. She’s a competitor to her bones, and even had a stab at the US Olympic trials for the London 2012 Games at the age of 40.

Evans sat down to record a Leaders Podcast on a beautiful mid-March day in LA at USC, her alma mater, and the home of the downtown sports park should LA win the right to host the 2024 Games.

Evans gives us a glimpse of the inner workings of an Olympic bid campaign and looks ahead to the factors that she hopes will swing it for LA when the IOC votes in Peru in September.
