Spites Mind
Was 20, But
The Bod Was 41

TOM TUGEND

Special to The Jewish News

T

om Jager poured cold
water on Mark Spitz's
comeback hopes, when
the 26-year old champion
beat the 41-year-old ex-
champ in their ballyhooed
50- meter butterfly race.
With his patented quick
start, Mr. Jager, considered
the fastest human afloat,
was never threatened and
easily won with a time of
24.92 seconds against Spitz's
26.70 seconds.
The afternoon race at Mis-
sion Viejo, Calif., on April 13
paid the winner $20,000 and
the loser $10,000.
Mr. Spitz, who made
swimming history by setting
seven world records and
winning seven gold medals
at the 1972 Olympics in
Munich, was obviously dis-
appointed by his loss, and
even more by his poor time.
"I've done one second
faster in practice," he said
after the race. "I felt good for
the first half lap, but
couldn't get my cadence go-
ing."
He admitted to a case of
nerves before the race and
said he would work on his
starts and emotions before
facing Matt Biondi over the
same distance on April 27.
In a pre-race interview,
Mr. Spitz said that his inten-
sity and concentration were
that of a man half his age,
but that he didn't know
whether a 41-year old body
could keep up with a 20-year-
old mind.
At this stage, the answer
appears to be negative.
Unless Mr. Spitz improves
drastically in the next two
weeks, he may have to bid
farewell to his ambition of
representing the United
States in the 100-meter but-
terfly at the 1992 Olympics
in Barcelona. ❑

opening game 81-80 over a
team from Livonia. But it was
forced from the tournament
in the second round, losing to
Inkster by 15 points.
