Phyllis Johnson

Phyllis Wyatt Johnson (born 8 December 1886 in Royal Tunbridge Wells, † December 2, 1967 ) was a British figure skater who started in a single run and pair skating.

At the age of 18 years, Mrs. Squire married the mine owner James H. Johnson, who was ten years older than she was in 1904. Together they won at the Olympic Games in London in 1908 the silver medal in pair skating behind Anna Hubler and Heinrich Burger and their fellow countrymen Madge Syers and Edgar Syers. In the same year they were also runners-up behind the Germans. At the World Championships 1909 in Stockholm, she finally won the World Cup, which they succeeded again in 1912 in Manchester. In 1910 they won bronze in Berlin. Due to the state of health of her partner, she had to look for a new skating partner and found him in Basil Williams. With him she won the bronze medal at the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp. It was the first time in the history of figure skating that someone could win a medal with two different partners.

In the individual race Johnson was successful. At the World Championships 1913 in Stockholm, she was Vice World Champion behind Opika of Méray - Horváth. 1912 and 1914 she won bronze. In her only appearance in the individual race at the Olympics she missed a medal in fourth place in 1920. In 1921 she was also British champion, but in the men's competition, as there was no separate ladies competition.
