Happy Birthday Flo Jo-Still The World's Fastest Woman
Today would have been the 52nd birthday of Florence Delorez Griffith Joyner, Olympian and the all time world's fastest woman. She was not only known for her glamorous style, with her signature six inch nails and designer track suits but usually being the one crossing the finish line first in many of the races she competed in
The records that she set in the 100m and 200m in 1988 have yet to be broken, much less challenged
She died tragically from a seizure at age 38 and is most definitely missed by many of us athletics fans because there hasn't been another woman who has come onto the scene with her blend of beauty, style and blazing speed since.
