The most famous female athlete of all time. Between 1938 and 1951, she set world records in 7 different events : 100 yards, 100 m, 220 yds, 80 m hurdles, high jump, long jump and pentathlon. She was fifth at the high jump at Berlin, but the war made that her next Olympics came at an age of 30. She was world record holder at high and long jump, but did not compete in these. 'I didn't like the high jump', she says, 'and the long jump almost coincided with a hurdles heat, and I preferred one gold medal to two silvers'. So she settled for only four events and won them all.
She made the final (of six) of the hurdles at Helsinki as well, but did not finish the race.
