World’s Fastest Woman: Flo Jo

www.olympic.org

 

Flo Jo, the star attraction of the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the fastest woman of all time (her 100m & 200m records have yet to be beaten) and my childhood idol. The perfect combination of strength and femininity, meant her striking image become legendary.  It was only in later years that I learnt, while never proven, her career was tainted by rumours of drug use. Who was your childhood sporting idol?
