Cheering on the Australian swimming team at the recent Rio Olympics, Joyce, from Arcare Eight Mile Plains, brought out the incredible Australian uniform she wore at the 1960 Rome Olympics.
She was the Manageress of the Australian Women’s Swimming Team at the olympics 56 years ago.
The uniform is still in perfect condition with a bottle green pleated skirt, a matching blazer with the Australian Coat of Arms embossed on the pocket and a stylish gold blouse underneath.
Watching the team race brought back wonderful memories for Joyce of her incredible sporting achievement.
