Sandra Morgan-Beavis (Morgan)

1942 -

At Melbourne 1956, the 14-year-old Sandra Morgan teamed with the three medallists from the 100 metres freestyle, Dawn Fraser, Lorraine Crapp and Faith Leech, to win the first medal by an Australian women's swimming relay team at the Olympic Games. Morgan was the youngest gold medallist of the Olympics at Melbourne and still holds that distinction for Australian Olympians. Morgan won a gold medal in the 4 x 110 yards freestyle relay at the 1958 Cardiff British Empire and Commonwealth Games and at Rome 1960, she swam in the preliminaries of the 4 x 100 metres relay.
