Jane Ellen Swagerty (born July 30, 1951), later known by her married name Jane Hill, is an American former competition swimmer and Olympic medalist. Swagerty represented the United States as a 17-year-old at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City.[1] She received a bronze medal for her third-place performance in the women's 100-meter backstroke (1:08.1), finishing behind fellow American Kaye Hall (1:06.2) and Canadian Elaine Tanner (1:06.7).[2] She also swam the backstroke leg in the preliminary heats of the women's 100-meter medley relay for the gold medal-winning U.S. team,[1] but did not receive a medal under the 1968 international swimming rules because she did not swim in the event final.
