Florence Griffith Joyner is a beauty icon and an olympic legend. As the world community comes together to celebrate the physical prowess of athletes around the world, I am celebrating one of the most beautiful athletes to hit the track. Flo-Jo took the 1988 Olympic games by storm taking 3 gold medals and 1 silver in Seoul, Korea. Florence Griffith Joyner is truly a track and field legend, making her mark in history as one of the most talented athletes of our time. I will always remember Flo-Jo as the beautiful track star with the fabulous flowing hair, dramatic makeup and flamboyantly decorated nails.
As a little girl I admired Flo-Jo’s physical strength and beauty. I wondered how she was able to win the 200 meter relay without sweating off her makeup. Yes, even as an 8 year old I was struck by her makeup and beauty. At the top of her game Flo-Jo made time for beauty and I loved her for it!
I believe in the impossible because no one else does – Florence Griffith Joyner
