Synopsis

The inspiring story of the first woman to win Olympic gold for Australia. 

In this episode of the Words of Olympians series –an original Olympic Channel production that reveals the intimacy of Olympic champions through a combination of animation and archive images– Marjorie Jackson recalls her first training sessions, which led to her winning two Olympic gold medals in 1952, and what her life was like after returning home.
