Sandra Morgan at the 1956 Summer Olympics
Sandra Anne Morgan (born 6 June 1942) is a former freestyle swimmer for Australi
a who won gold in the 4×100-metre freestyle relay at the 1956 Summer Olympics in M
elbourne. At the age of 14 years and 6 months, she became the youngest Australia
n to win an Olympic gold medal, a record that still stands. Morgan's selection f
or the race raised controversy because of her inexperience in top-level racing a
nd her history of false starts. In her only individual event, she came sixth in
the 400-metre freestyle. In 1957, she won the 110-, 220-, and 440-yard treble at
the Australian Championships in the absence of her main rivals. She was selecte
d in the 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games as a relay swimmer, winning
gold in the event. Since her retirement from competitive swimming in 1960, she h
as taught disabled children to swim and participated in Olympic educational prog
rams and torch relays. She is also an ambassador for Australia Day and has appea
red on television as part of her work with Christian groups. (Full article...)
