Ludy won a gold medal in the shot put, a bronze in the javelin throw, and finished fourth in the 300 meter and 1000 meter race at the first International Track Meet for Women in Paris in 1922. This meet is considered the forerunner of women’s Olympic competition. Her Gold medal winning throw in the shot put broke the world record.
