Biography

[Ingrid Krämer] of East Germany had won this event in Roma and had already defended her 1960 springboard title in Tokyo, and was expected to complete a double-double on the platform. But American Lesley Bush took the lead on her opening dive and was never headed, leading throughout to win the gold medal. Bush was an unheralded high school senior and when asked how it felt to lead Krämer into the final round, she said, “It was sort of scary, but gee, gosh, it was great.” The bronze medal went to Soviet diver Galina Alekseyeva.
