Helen Stephens (1918-1994) was an athlete competing in several disciplines such as shot
put, discus throw and 100 m. She won two gold medals in the Berlin Olympic Games
won the 100 m event at the age of 18, beating the world champion and setting a
time lower than the world record; however, the new record was not registered
because of a strong tailwind. After retiring from athletics, she became the
first woman to own and manage a semi-professional basketball team.
