Nicole Pélissard

Nicole Pélissard-Darrigrand

B. 1931-07-05, Casablanca, (French Protectorate of) Morocco, represented France

Women's Springboard fourth 7th 7th 9th 2560

Born in Casablanca and member of an aquatics club there, I would have classed her as Moroccan. However, she competed in 1960 for France, when Morocco already had an NOC of its own. I do not have people change nationalities when that is not needed, so I class her as French.
