Florence Griffith-Joyner Becomes 'The Fastest Woman Of All Time' (Seoul 1988)
Florence Griffith-Joyner (also known as Flo-Jo) won three gold medals in the track and field competition at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4x100 meters relay competitions, resulting in Flo-Jo being christened "the fastest woman of all time." Despite rumors of steroid use, Griffith-Joyner was tested during the competition and did not fail any drug tests. Sadly, Griffith-Joyner would die at the age of 38 in 1998, due to suffocation during an epileptic seizure.
