Susan Devoy
Inducted in 1993
The bald figures of achievement hardly do justice to Dame Susan Devoy: 11 years of international squash, world champion four times, British Open champion eight times, New Zealand Open champion eight times.

Susan Devoy was utterly dominant in her time. Part of her makeup was not just her excellence on the court, but also her actions and demeanour off it, including a trek through New Zealand in 1989 in aid of muscular dystrophy sufferers, a commitment that may have cost her the 1989 world title.

When she retired, other women squash players would have breathed a sigh of relief.

Devoy was created a dame for her contribution to the sport and she later became chairman of the Halberg Trust.

(1971 - 1972)

The success of the New Zealand rowing eight at the Munich Olympics in 1972, the same eight that had won the European championship the year before, was one of those wins that seem to transcend sport.
