About Login
Fifty years on, Dorothy remains Britain’s finest ever female 100m runner. In 1960, when still a teenager and assumed to be an outsider she won Olympic 100m silver and 200m bronze. European and Commonwealth 100m champion in 1962 she had her best year in ’63 when World’s number one at 100m and just a tenth of a second outside Wilma Rudolph’s world record. Dorothy won a third Olympic medal (her eleventh from all major champs) in Tokyo in 1964 helping the 4x100m to bronze before retiring at the age of 23. She made a comeback in 1969 beating most of Britain’s best that year but was unable to compete internationally having accepted money from her autobiography. Holder of GB records at 100m and 200m for twelve years (1962-1974) she won BBC Sports Personality in 1963.
