ZATOPKOVA INGROVA Dana (1922) Czech Republic / Track and field
A winner of fewer titles than her husband, the famous Emile Zatopek, Dana Zatopkova had to wait till her thirties for Olympic glory. She was gold medallist in the javelin at the Helsinki games of 1952.European champion in '54 and '58, she was again there at the Rome games in 1960, where she won the silver medal. Emile Zatopek, who by then had hung up his running spikes, was at the edge of the arena to support her with all his heart.
