A former Olympic athlete who campaigned for better birth control in Birmingham has died at the age of 92.
Audrey Court, who originally lived in Selly Park, was a founder member of the city's Brook Advisory Centre.
In 2003 she moved to Manchester, where she died on Sunday after a short illness.
Mrs Court fervently campaigned for the sex advice centre where young girls could go for help and to get contraceptives without having to risk bumping into relatives.
When the Birmingham clinic opened on September 17, 1966, it was the first centre of its kind outside London and is now the biggest in Britain, seeing 40,000 people a year.
But it was as Audrey Brown that she competed in the 'Nazi Olympics' in front of Adolf Hitler during the 1936 Games in Berlin.
The 23-year-old Birchfield Harrier won a silver medal as part of the British women's 4 x 100m relay team - on the same day her brother Godfrey raced to gold in the men's event.
Her campaign to improve birth control for teenagers and single women began in 1948 when she began volunteering with the Birmingham Family Planning Association.
Mrs Court, a Birmingham University graduate, also served as the body's secretary and chairman during her 47-year career.
The family planning pioneer was president of Brook in Birmingham and vicepresident of its national body.
Her dedication to improving access to contraception and clinics for young people was rewarded in 1991 when she was made an MBE in the New Year's Honours.
Last night Penny Barber, chief executive of Brook in Birmingham, paid tribute to Mrs Court and her career.
She said: "Audrey did fantastic work setting up Brook at a time when getting any form of contraception if you were unmarried was impossible.
"There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of men and women across the region who have every reason to be thankful for everything she did. She was a remarkable woman, when she saw a need she'd move mountains to meet it - and in the way she approached these issues Audrey was very far-seeing."
Mrs Court was a widow and is survived by her three daughters, four grandchildren and one great-grandson.
Her funeral will be held on Monday at Lodge Hill Crematorium, followed by a gathering at the Midland Arts Centre in Edgbaston.
