Best Season

In 1984, probably her finest season, at the Los Angeles Olympics, she won a further two bronze medals. Firstly, over 400 m, she smashed the British and Commonwealth record. In the far from ideal Lane 1, she collected another bronze, as part of 4 x 100 m relay team featuring her teammates Simone Jacobs (1st leg), Beverley Callendar (3rd leg), and Heather Oakes (anchor leg), clocking 43.11 - well down on the British record she helped set alongside Callendar and Oakes in Moscow 1980. She missed another bronze medal in the 200 m by a mere 1/100th of a second. She made up for a relatively poor start by a very strong late surge in the closing stages, almost passing the Silver and Bronze medallists.

In the 1986 Commonwealth Games, she won silver at 200 m, bronze at 400 m, gold in the 4 x 100 m relay, and silver in the 4 x 400 m relay.

In 2011, she was inducted into the England Athletics Hall of Fame.
