Jackie Joyner-KerseeAs one of the most decorated female athletes of all-time, Jackie Joyner-Kersee dominated the track and field circuit for 13 years and won three gold, one silver and two bronze medals, spanning four Olympic Games, during her illustrious career. This U.S. Track and Field Hall of Fame inductee still holds the world record in the heptathlon (7291 points) and is the American record holder in both the heptathlon and long jump (24-7).
The inaugural recipient of the Humanitarian Athlete of the Year, she has helped to build the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Youth Center Foundation that has raised more than $12 million and has founded Athletes for Hope, a charitable organization of professional athletes who get involved in charitable causes and inspire millions of non-athletes to volunteer and support their community. In 2011, Jackie was selected as the recipient of the Dick Enberg Award, which is presented annually to a person whose actions and commitment have furthered the meaning and reach of the Academic All-America® Teams Program and/or the student-athlete, while promoting the values of education and academics. Most recently, Jackie has embarked upon a nationwide effort to enhance the comprehensive health of our nation’s communities through the promotion of healthy lifestyles.
