British Swimming and the ASA are mourning Olympic medallist Dr Elizabeth Ferris who passed away on 12 April 2012.

Liz was the last British woman to win an Olympic diving medal, claiming 3m Springboard bronze at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome.

Originally from Bridgwater, Somerset, Liz was a founding member of the International Olympic Committee’s Women in Sport commission in 1995 and also helped launch the World Olympians Association and the British Olympians Club.
