VAN MOORSEL - ZILJAARD Leontien (1972) Holland / Cycling
Already gold medalist in Sydney for the individual pursuit and silver medallist for the points race, Dutchwoman Leontien Van Moorsel, now Mrs. Ziljaard went one better in the streets of Sydney with an astonishing double gold medal haul in the road race and the time-trial.Ziljaard, whose meteoric ascension was halted by anorexia and bulimia, gave a her career a new kick-start in Sydney, walking off with one of the most impressive rolls of honour in international cycling. She should now be respected for her results. Beforehand, she had been a symbol of the feminisation of cycling and made the front page of the newspapers with her pretty face and her plunging necklines.
