Jennifer Lamy

1949 -

Jenny Lamy, third, and Raelene Boyle, second, pushed the great Irena Szewinska (nee Kirszenstein) from Poland to an equal world record in the 200m at Mexico City 1968. Lamy and Boyle then teamed with Joyce Bennett and Diane Burge (nee Bowring) to finish a creditable fifth in the 4x100m relay in a time that bettered the pre-Olympics world record. Whilst only competing at one Olympics, Lamy was part of the victorious women's sprint relay teams at the Empire and Commonwealth Games at Kingston 1966, Edinburgh 1970 and Christchurch 1974.
