She was a niece to composer Lucien Paroche and she won acclaim at the piano. In her Olympic triumph, she was helped by the absence of Russian Athletes, who held the world records at Shot and Discus. She had entered the discus only as an afterthought, being in London anyway. She celebrated her victories with an impromptu recital of Beethoven at France's team headquarters.
