Biography

Winnipeg-born Millie Cheater spent most of her life in Vancouver, where she was a star track and field athlete at King Edward High School. A specialist in short distances, she was most successful in the mid-1940s. In the leadup to the Canadian trials for the 1948 Summer Olympics, she set a national record in the Senior Girls 75 yard dash and became senior National Champion in the 60 m in 1947. At the trials she was third in the 100 m, behind [Pat Jones] and [Viola Myers], and second in the 200 m, behind [Diane Foster] but ahead of [Donna Gilmore]. These results qualified her to represent Canada at the Games in both events, but she was eliminated in the heats and retired from active competition shortly thereafter.

Personal Bests: 100 – 12.2 (1947); 200 – 25.9 (1948).
