EDITORS COMMENTS
Irena Szewinska, a trailblazing athlete of the 1970s, showcases her remarkable speed and agility as she competes in the 200 Metres during the Athletics Championship in June 1972. This print captures the essence of her athletic prowess and determination. At just 18 years old, Irena Szewinska made history by winning her first Olympic Gold as part of the Polish sprint team at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964. Her exceptional talent extended beyond sprinting; she also claimed silver medals in long jump and 200m events. However, it was at Mexico's Olympics in 1968 where she truly left an indelible mark on sports history. Breaking world records with astonishing speed, Irena secured a well-deserved Gold medal in the fiercely competitive 200m race. Incredibly versatile, Irena continued to dominate track and field throughout her career. At Montreal's Olympics in 1976, aged thirty but undeterred by age barriers, she triumphed once again by clinching another Gold medal—this time for her incredible performance at the grueling distance of 400m. Irena Szewinska shattered gender stereotypes with every stride she took on the track. She became renowned as not only one of Poland's greatest athletes but also as a global icon for women breaking boundaries within sports. Her groundbreaking achievement includes being recognized as the first woman to complete a sub-50-second run for the challenging distance of 400
