Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Al Joyner are both Olympic gold medalists. Jackie has also won an Olympic silver medal and two bronze medals to go with the three gold medals that she won in the heptathalon. Sports Illustrated named her the Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th century.
Jackie’s brother Al Joyner won an Olympic gold medal for his performance in the triple jump in 1984, becoming the first American to do so in 80 years. He was married to Olympic sprinter Florence Griffith-Joyner, who sadly died in 1998 from an epileptic seizure. Joyner re-married five years later, and today he directs the Flo Jo Community Empowerment Foundation, a charity founded in his first wife’s memory.
