Biography

Although she was a finalist at the Olympic Games, European Championships and Commonwealth Games over 200 metres, the greatest achievements of Barbados-born Bev Goddard-Callender's career came as a specialist bend runner on sprint relays for England and Great Britain. She collected Commonwealth Games titles for England in 1978 and 1982, European Championship silver medals also in both 1978 and 1982 and a silver medal in the first World Championships in 1983 with all the medals coming in the 4x100 relay. In both of her bronze medal winning Olympic relays she was entrusted with the third leg and the British record the team set in Moscow was still the national record at the start of 2014. She now works as a teacher in her adopted home town of Reading.

Personal Bests\: 100 – 11.22 (1979); 200 – 22.72 (1980).
