In 1955, Isabelle Daniels finished second in the 60 m and was on the winning 4×100 m relay team at the Pan American Games (with [Barbara Jones], [Mae Faggs], and [Mabel Landry]). Although Daniels finished second to [Mae Faggs] in the 1956 AAU 100 m, she reversed the decision at the Final Trials and went to Melbourne as the first-string U.S. sprinter. At the Games she was initially awarded third place in a desperately close finish, but after a reexamination of the photo finish she was placed fourth. In the relay she ran the anchor leg on the team that set a new U.S. record of 44.9 behind Australia and Great Britain, with all three teams bettering the previous world record. At the 1959 Pan American Games she won a gold medal in the 60 m, a silver medal in the 200 m and again the gold medal in the 4×100 m relay (with [Barbara Jones], [Lucinda Williams], and [Wilma Rudolph]). Isabelle Daniels won five AAU sprint titles outdoors and seven indoors. She was also a member of the Tennessee State team that won the AAU relay for five years in a row.
Personal Bests: 100 – 11.6 (1956); 200 – 23.6 (1959).
