Dwayne Eugene Evans (born October 13, 1958) was an American athlete who mainly competed in the 200 metres. He competed for the United States in the 1976 Summer Olympics held in Montreal, Canada, where he won the bronze medal in the men’s 200 metres event. That same year, he had just graduated from South Mountain High School in Phoenix, Arizona. That year he also set the still standing NFHS national high school records in the 220 yard dash at 20.5. The federation converted record-keeping to metric distances shortly afterward. He continued to run, achieving his PR of 20.08 in 1987. Evans is currently coaching baseball in Yuma, Arizona, and has twin daughters who are track athletes at Texas Tech University.
