Peters, Mary (1939 - )
Head and shoulders of Olympic gold medallist Dame Mary Peters in August 2000. She is sitting with her hands folded on the desk in front of her, smiling straight to camera. This still was taken on the third floor of RTE's Administration Building, shortly after her appointment to the RTE Authority on 1 June 2000 for a period of five years.
Peters won the pentathlon in the 1972 Munich Games when she competed for Northern Ireland. She was awarded an MBE in January 1973, a CBE in 1994 and was made Dame of the British Empire in June 2000.
