She won the gold medal in the 200m at the 1978 Commonwealth Games in Edmonton and in the 4x100m relay at the Christchurch Games four years earlier. Boyd reached two Olympic finals in the 200m sprint during her career. The sprinter held the Australian 200m record with a time of 22.35 set in 1980, until it was broken by Cathy Freeman at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada. A four-time winner of the 100m/200m double at the Australian national titles, Boyd won the 200m/400m double in 1983.  Denise married fellow Australian team member Ray Boyd who competed at three Commonwealth Games, winning the gold medal in the pole vault at the Brisbane Games in 1992 and a two-time Olympian. The Boyd’s daughter Alana Boyd won the pole vault at the 2010 and 2104 Commonwealth Games and finished 4th in the Rio 2016 Olympics, and their son Matt also competed for Australia at the Commonwealth Games, jumping in the pole vault at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
