BLANKERS-KOEN Fanny (1918 - 2004) Netherlands / Track and field
Nicknamed "the flying Dutchwoman", this athlete was competing alongside France's Michèle Ostermayer, star of the 1948 London games.Whilst the French girl won shot put and discus events, the Dutch girl took four gold medals in the 100 m, 200 m, the 4x400 m relay and the 80 m hurdles. It is worth noting that Fanny Blankers-Koen should never have taken part in this last event, having been programmed at the same time as the long jump, for which she already held the current world title. However, her choice turned out to be a profitable one even if the winners of the long-jump and high-jump, the two specialities in which she held the world record, jumped nothing like the height or distance she normally did.
