Re that "new cup" that was awarded in 1960 - the Ann Webb cup for "General Proficiency and Progress in Swimming" - Ann was an SA national champion swimmer and, while competing in the junior division, swam faster times than the senior champion Joan Harrison who won gold at the Helsinki Olympics.
Ann was also my mother, and I was coincidently born in the same year as the cup - 1960 - and also went on to display some "proficiency & progress in swimming" by swimming the English Channel in 2007.
