Walasiewicz on the right (changed her last name to Walsh) set over one-hundred national and world records, including fifty-one Polish records, eighteen world records, and 8 European records. Her success did not come without controversy. Walsh was thought to be a man, despite birth records that clearly indicated she was female. She was killed during an armed robbery in 1980, an autopsy confirmed that she possessed male genitalia. A detailed investigation later revealed that Walsh was born with both an XX and an XY pair of chromosomes.
