About Login
Mary’s international career was a marathon for the time of 16 years and extended through five Commonwealth games and included seventeen WAAA titles plus eleven other podiums. From most humble beginnings she became a world class all rounder in 1962 but was overshadowed by Mary Rand until the latter’s retirement. Britain’s number one shot putter in 1965 it was 1970 before she reached the top in Britain in Combined events. In such times athletes often had easier years and Mary took 1969 and 1971 off to prolong her career before her remarkable Olympic win in Munich aged 33 where she set a world record, an overlooked British record for the 100 Hurdles and huge PB’s in high Jump and 200m for a dramatic gold medal.
