Given her accomplishments, I'm embarrassed to say that I remember very little about her. A quick Internet search retrieved this anecdote, from a 1987 Sports Illustrated article about a young basketball player named Michael Jordon:
"Jordan's effect on women is positively staggering -- a stark reversal of his high school days when Dumbo ears and a self-described 'gooney' status with his classmates deprived him of dates. He enrolled in home economics courses as preparation for life as a bachelor, but by the time he arrived at the Olympics in 1984 he had become a renowned ladies' man. In Los Angeles, Jordan and Kim Gallagher, the silver medalist in the women's 800 meters, were an item that coach Bob Knight almost discovered one night while checking his players' rooms at curfew time. Luckily, Jordan and his suite mates hid Gallagher in their closet just before Knight got there."
