SMALL GUY, RIG SPLASH:
Mannl SparkI--s 'NI' Tankmen

A P Sports Roundup

By KEN BIALKIN
How can a man so short swim
so far so fast?
This question is constantly be-
ing raised by amazed onlookers as
they watch Malt. Mann III, Michi-j
gan's great middle-distance and
long distance swimmer, glide back'
and forth, seemingly without ef-
fort, in the I-M pool.
*c
STANDING about five feet nine
inches, Matt is not small by ordi-'
nary standards, but when com-;
pared to other swimming mara-
thoners like Ohio State's Billr
'Whale' Smith and Northwestern's
Bill Heusner, each over six feet,
Mann is definitely diminutive.
The answer to the question
becomes apparent when we lok
at Mann's background. It is al-
most an understatement to say
that he comes from a swimming
family. Being the son of Michi-
gan's swimming coach, Matty

has been in training almost his was a. fitting reward for the{
entire life. hard-working tankman.

The greatest thrill in his swim-
ming career came last year when
Michigan walked off with the
Big Nine championships. It was
a great feeling to belong to one
of the finest swimming aggre-
gations in the country, and it

father-son relationships. His swim-
ming coach during the winter, his
boss during the summer, his for-:
mer Sunday school teacher, and
his father in the off moments
makes the combination of Mann
and Mann a familiar one.
While still a student in high
svhool, Matt went down to North
Carolina to compete in the Na-
tional Junior AAU meets. The
only high school student in tli.!
meet, Matty walked off with the
Junior AAU championship for
the 880-yard freestyle, and the
record he established at that+
time still stands.
Although he has swum for such
a long time Matty still is cutting
down his times. This year he
knocked three seconds off of his
220-yard time clocking - 2:09.4,
just off the American record of
2:07.7 held by OSU's Bill Smith.
Matty is considered a real threat
for next. year's Big Nine competi-
tion and if he keeps clipping those:
seconds off of his time, it will be
hard to find anyone capable of
beating him.

Evashevski said he thought the
athletic setup here was good. He
said he was pleased with the treat-
