Biography

At the 1975 Pan-American Games, Jill Sterkel won a gold medal in the relay and a silver in the individual 100m freestyle. At the 1976 Olympics she again won a relay gold, but fared less well in the individual freestyle events, placing seventh in the 100m final and losing out in the heats of the 200m free. Jill Sterkel won her only individual AAU title when she won the outdoor 100m freestyle in 1976, but she led her club to the AAU freestyle relay title, both indoors and out, that year. Sterkel swam for the El Monte AC with the same coach, Don LaMont, who trained Sandy Neilson.
