About Florence Griffith Joyner

Florence Delorez Griffith-Joyner (December 21, 1959 September 21, 1998), also known as Flo-Jo, was an American track and field athlete. She is considered the 'fastest woman of all time' based on the fact that the world records she set in 1988 for both the 100 metres and 200 metres still stand and have yet to be seriously challenged. She died in her sleep as the result of an epileptic seizure in 1998 at the age of 38. She attended University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
