Tokyo 1964: The women's 800m had been banned since 1928, when several athletes collapsed taking part. After bagging silver in the 400m, Ann Packer stepped up to the newly-restored event and wowed the crowds with a new world record. She had only started running 800m earlier that year to increase her endurance, and in Tokyo filled the final slot on the GB team partly to avenge her fiancé Robbie Brightwell's disappointing fourth place in the 400m. She announced her retirement shortly after the Games, aged just 22.
