Stormed to victory over 400m Hurdles in 1992, the first British woman to win gold on the track since Ann Packer. She also took the IAAF World title in 1993 in a new world record.

A farmers daughter, she had begun her career with a AAA junior title in the Long Jump but became British record holder at 100m Hurdles, and took Commonwealth gold at the distance in 1986. Moved up to 400m Hurdles in 1988 and finished 5th in the semi final in Seoul. She won relay gold at the 1990 European championships in Split and completed her set of major 400m Hurdles titles with gold in the 1994 Championships.

After winning her gold medal, she became a TV presenter with Skysports and later an interviewer for BBC. She was also an ambassador for London 2012.
