Andrea LYNCH - Great Britain & N.I. - Two silvers & a bronze in 1974

In 1974 Andrea Lynch equalled the world record for the 60 metres, running 7.2 seconds.

She had some of her greatest successes in that indoor event, winning the gold medal at

the 1975 European Athletics Indoor Championships, having previously won a silver at

the competition in 1974. Andrea represented Great Britain at the Olympics in 1972 and 1976.

In her first appearance, while still a teenager, she was a semi-finalist in the 100 m and was

seventh in the 4 × 100 metres relay. Returning four years later, she made the

Olympic 100 metres final and placed seventh, as well as making the relay final.
