Item Number:  5640

Anita Lonsbrough is a british swimming legend who inspired a generation of swimmers.

At the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome, on 27 August 1960, at the age of 19, she won gold in the 200 m breaststroke in 2:49.5 ahead of West Germany's Wiltrud Urselmann (2:50.0), setting a new world record time. She was one of only two GB gold medallists that year, the other being Don Thompson in the 50 kilometre walk.

She would also be the last British woman to win Olympic gold in swimming until Rebecca Adlington gained the gold in the 2008 Summer Olympics, 48 years later.

At the 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Perth she won three golds: 110 yards breaststroke; 220 yards breaststroke; and 440 yards individual medley.

This rare one-off item of signed Athletics memorabilia comprises of a large photo of Anita during a visit to Liverpool Town Hall.

Under this is an historic and colourful Olympic First Day of Issue Postal Cover which is date stamped and personally signed by Lonsbrough across the front.

There is also an embedded replica Olympic Medal inset into the cover itself.

It is presented in its original, classic wooden frame with dual inset mounts and measures in at a large and impressive 52cm by 43cm.

Part of a large private collection, this is a great one-off item of signed Swimming memorabilia.
