From the IMDb:
In an informal talk at a local college, Ironside says all criminal plots are flawed. An anonymous student challenges that statement by wounding several people - including Eve - with long-range rifle shots.

Peggy Fortune is a member of the Bay College shooting team and is determined to be the star shooter so that she could eclipse her mom.  Mrs. Fortune won the 1948 Olympic Gold Medal in target shooting. 

This probably happened before Mrs. Fortune was married.  Peggy might have even changed her family name, anglicizing it from "Fortuna".

But there's no point in looking for Peggy's mother under any possible surnames in the 1948 Olympics.  The gender categories in the Olympics are a major divergence from the Trueniverse, as apparently are many specific sports events depicted in TV.  

Here are the Gold Medal winners in shooting for the 1948 Olympics:

From Wikipedia:
Women made their shooting debut at the Games of the XIX Olympiad in Mexico City in 1968, competing in men’s events. The first purely women’s events appeared in 1984, and it was only in 1996 that the men’s and women’s programs were completely separated.

So 'Ironside' would be responsible for a difference between the real world and Toobworld, but in a way that doesn't appear to have created any major Zonks.
