OLYMPIAN Dorothy Hyman was presented with a photo album and flowers by the history group of her hometown.

Cudworth History Group - who last year unveiled a blue plaque for Dorothy at the sports centre on Snydale Road which bears her name - has compiled the book which features photos of her sporting achievements.

A silver medal at the 1958 European Championships in Stockholm kicked off a career which included a world record in the 4x100-yard relay at the Commonwealth Games that year, and silver and bronze medals in the 100m and 200m at the Rome Olympics two years later.

European Championships gold, silver and bronze followed, as did two golds and a silver at the Commonwealth Games, with a bronze in the 4x100-metre relay at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics her final major international success.

The sprinter who trained on Cudworth’s fields and footpaths also won BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1963 and is an England Athletics Hall of Fame member.
