Footnotes

  • Whilst women had participated in the Paris Games in 1900, gymnastics debuted in the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics. Broadbent, originally from Halifax, was 20 when she took her week's holiday from Ramsden's Brewery to go to Amsterdam and compete, going on to take bronze for Great Britain. The competition consisted of free exercises, drill, dancing steps, marching, parallel bars and swing rings work. In the newspaper clippings included in this lot, Broadbent comments: "we just did what the fellers did - and that included the swing rings. And I can tell you, that wasn't easy." Broadbent went on to win the English championships in 1929 before retiring from gymnastics completely.
