Florence “FloJo” Joyner's fans nicknamed her FloJo long before there was a J.Lo on the scene.
FloJo won three gold medals in Olympics track and field and set still-unbroken track records but, like J.Lo, FloJo, too, could have been in the movies with looks and body that rival any Hollywood star.
Florence FloJo Joyner was so much more than a gold medal runner in the Olympics. She raised the standards of beauty not only in track and field but also in the ordinary world, where her style changed the image of female runners and raised the appreciation the world had for the beauty of black women, in particular. Influencing every woman in America as she graced finish lines, FloJo was a winner of gold medals in the Olympics and so much more than the fastest woman in the world. Florence FloJo Joyner would have a birthday coming up on December 21. She would turn 53. But knowing this incredibly astonishing beauty, she would still be creating and exuding her familiar elegance and style, and still teaching American women how to stay in their running shoes.
