    The legend of Babe Didrikson

    Between 31 July and 7 August 1932, multi-talented champion Mildred “Babe” Didrikson won three medals and set three records at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles: gold in the javelin throw and the 80m hurdles, and silver in the high jump despite having tied for first place with a leap of 1.65m, after being deemed to have used an invalid technique. This unprecedented Olympic medal haul has never been repeated, and Didrikson’s performances at the Games preceded an extraordinary amateur then professional golf career.
