National Treasure: Mary Rand

First class Olympian Mary Rand is most highly esteemed for being the first British female to win a gold medal in a track and field event.

She won her medal by breaking the world record for long jump at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964.

Since then, Mary Rand has proved an inspiration for British athletes, in particular female athletes, and for Britain as a country. Another reason to be proud to be British.
