Re: The Official Married Names Thread

Would this be the Winch who reached the semi-finals of the 1908 Olympic Games?
Yes it would.

That would make Katie Gillou the youngest tennis player ever to play at the Olympics (age 13 in the mixed doubles in 1900).
Are you sure about the date of birth?
Or maybe it was the elder sister who played?
Mark can answer better than I can. The only thing I wanted to point out was it's very possible she competed at such a young age. In those days the restrictive clothing women wore sometimes gave young girls an advantage, as they were not yet bound up in the same way.
