Olympics -1984 L A Games Day 4 – Women’s Swimming 200m Backstroke & 200m Butterfly


Jolanda de Rover (gold) from the Netherlands defeated USA Amy White (silver) in the women’s 200m backstroke…..but the real winner on this day was none other than “Madame Butterfly”….USA Mary T. Meagher….the world’s best women’s butterfly swimmer for many years. Mary T. was surely one of those swimmers worth watching every time she entered the pool….cuz you just might get to see a world record on any given day.
