Biography

Mildred Richardson played a large part in the development of figure skating for decades. Originally a talented singer, she gave that up after getting involved with skating at the Prince’s Club in Knightsbridge. Having won many pairs competitions, Mildred eventually married her partner [Tyke Richardson] in 1915. They resumed their careers after the War and after finishing second in the British Championship in 1923, were chosen for the pairs event at the Olympics the following year. Whilst she did not compete, Mildred was captain of the Great Britain figure skating team for the 1936 Winter Olympics. Her husband wrote internationally famous books on skating, and was also the skating correspondent for The Times, while Mildred became the skating and winter sports correspondent for The Observer after World War II
