|Belgrade 1962||400 metres|
She won the silver medal in the women's 400 metres at the 1962 European Athletics Championships in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, having taken a week's leave from work to compete. She came in behind Maria Itkina of the Soviet Union, and ahead of Tilly van der Made of the Netherlands.
She also represented Great Britain in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, and was one of the favourites, but a hamstring injury hampered her chances and she only reached the semi-final. She retired from athletics after the 1966 Commonwealth Games, and married Darlington F.C. footballer Stan Watson.
