1988: Flo-Jo is a winner

On Sept. 25, 1988, photographer Russell Cheyne captured this image of the United States’ Florence Griffith-Joyner winning the women’s 100 meters final in Seoul. She would ultimately walk away with three gold medals and the nickname Flo-Jo. Though her world records in the 100- and 200-meter dashes still stand today, Griffith-Joyner died at the age of 38 during an epileptic seizure.
