Here’s a picture from the photo page of the August 18 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:
Lillian Copeland (1904-1964) was in the midst of a successful Olympic career. In the 1928 Olympic Games, the first Games in which women were allowed to participate, she placed second in the discus. She then won the event in the 1932 Games.
She refused to participate in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin; she was Jewish, and objected to Hitler’s barring Jews from the German Olympic team.
After retiring from athletics, she worked in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
