Olympic gold medalist Janet Evans promoted water safety Tuesday while  joining in an attempt to set a world record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson.

Evans delivered her pitch at a pool facility in La Mirada, one of 700 around the world participating in the event. Aside from setting a record, the endeavor — billed as “The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson” — had a more serious aim: to stress the importance of teaching children to swim to help prevent drowning.

“Drowning is an epidemic in our country,” said Evans, who won gold medals in swimming at the 1988 and 1992 Olympics.

“Everyone should have the life skill and the joy of knowing how to swim,” she said.
