Description

    1988 Florence Griffith-Joyner Olympic Track & Field Member Certificate. Still known as the "fastest woman of all time," Florence Griffith-Joyner set world records in the 100 meter and 200 meter events in Seoul in 1988. Besides gold medals for those individual events, she also score a gold in a 4x100 meter relay, silver in the 4 x 400 meter relay and silver in the 1984 200 meter event. Griffith died tragically in her sleep at the age of just 38, making memorabilia of her career quite scarce. This lot is a stellar item for Olympics fans, as it is her original selection certificate to the "1988 Olympic Track & Field Team." The certificate is inlaid into a 14x17" wooden board with a blue border. Light scratching on the front does not detract from this phenomenal original award.
