Jackie Joyner-Kersee was voted by Sports Illustrated to be Women's Greatest Female Athlete of All-Time (1987). She's the first American ever to win a gold medal in the long jump and the first woman in history to earn more than 7,000 points in the grueling seven-event heptathlon. She's won three Olympic gold medals, one silver, and one bronze, and she established a world record in the heptathlon in 1986. Her achievements are so astounding, and her personality so engagingthat she has become one of Americas favorite track athletes.
