Lillian Copeland (November 25, 1904 – July 7, 1964) was an American athlete, who excelled in weight throwing. She has been called “the most successful female discus thrower in U.S. history”, despite the fact that she held multiple titles in shot put and javelin throwing as well.
Until the Beijing Games, she was the only American woman to win the discus throw at a modern Olympiad.
She was also the first Olympian who was an alumna of the University of Southern California and Los Angeles High School.
