In 1931 she was involved in a plane crash. The man who found her body thought she was dead, put her in his car boot and drove her to a mortician – but she was still alive, in a coma. She woke seven months later, and spent six months in a wheelchair. It took her two years to learn to walk normally again. Incredibly, she eventually returned to racing. In 1936 she won her second gold in the 4x100m. [x]
