Victoria Manalo Draves was the first Asian-American woman
to win an Olympic medal when she earned gold medals
in the 3-meter springboard and the 10-meter platform diving
competitions at the 1948 Olympics. Born in the South of
Market area to an English mother and Filipino father, Ms.
Manalo Draves attended the school adjacent to this site,
which later became Bessie Carmichael Elementary School.
Ms. Manalo Draves achieved her success despite facing
discrimination early in her diving career. Her achievement
continues to serve as an inspiration for all athletes interested
in competition regardless of race, creed or national origin.
