Judith Trim

Type: Player/Athlete
Sports: Shotput
Location: Australia

Judy Trim was just 21 when in 1970 she became the first Australian ever to win the world championship 'Ladies Standard Pistol' event. At Phoenix, Arizona, she shot a world record 554 (94, 97, 92, 94, 85, 92) out of a possible 600 after paying her own way to represent Australia. Judy failed to finish in the top three in the Australian titles that year but had competed with a badly cut hand and was given the opportunity of paying for her trip. She is Australia's only world champion in this event to date.
