Jackie Joyner-Kersee

Sport (Years Played): Track and Field (1987-1996)
In an era where an immediate success gets followed by queries over performance-enhancing drugs, there were no questions surrounding Jackie Joyner-Kersee. As a six-time Olympic gold medalist and star basketball player for UCLA, Joyner-Kersee was one of the best to do it. Since leaving the game, the runner has made strides off the track by starting the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation which provides athletic resources to at-risk families in the St. Louis area.
