Dorothy Tyler, Britain's first ever female Olympic athletics medallist, has died at the age of 94.
Tyler made history in 1936 when she became the first British woman to win a medal as she claimed silver in the high jump at the age of 16.
The four-time Olympian also medalled at her home Games in London in 1948, but it was her performance in Berlin 12 years earlier that left her name in the record books.
It was the first time Tyler, then competing under her pre-marriage name of Dorothy Odam, had travelled away from the UK, but her jump of 1.60 metres was enough to finish second to Hungary's Ibolya Csak.
Her second medal has helped her remain as Britain's most decorated female high jumper of all time, while she also broke the world record in 1939 with a 1.66m clearance.
Tyler won her first major international title at the Empire Games in Sydney in 1938, a year before her world record, and also prior to the war, where Tyler drove official vehicles.
She retired from competing after the 1956 Olympics, later becoming a coach, official and British team manager.
At the age of 81 she was made an MBE, and in 2009 inducted in to the England Athletics Hall of Fame.
