Olympic Women of the Century

[Illustration Copyright ©2004 Steve McGarry]

Swimmer Amy Van Dyken tried so hard in her first final at the 1996 Olympics, the 100m freestyle, that she tied up and cramped after the race. The disappointment only served to inspire the 6-foot, 23-year-old from Colorado. She captured her first gold in the 100m butterfly, swam two superb legs in the 4x100m and individual medley relay victories and then captured the 50m sprint ... her four gold medals making her the most-successful woman ever at one Olympics
