She had in her career, the bad luck that their strongest time fell a swimmer in the time when there was no Olympics because of World War II and she also was able to win any Olympic medal. Only at the European Championships in 1938 she had the opportunity to win an international title, which they also took advantage by winning the 100m back.
My world record of 1:10,9 minutes on 100 m backstroke from September 22, 1939 held up to the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, as it could break Lynn Burke. This period of 21 years is the longest time that has ever held a world record in swimming. In 1971, she was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the international swimming sport.
