Back on Track: 3 Time Olympic Gold Medalist Gail Devers’ Story


Blink and you just might miss the fastest woman in the world. But you’ll never forget her champion’s smile, and her signature fingernails.

Gail Devers became a household name during the Barcelona Olympics of 1992. The young American sprinter raced into our hearts with one of the greatest finishes in Olympic history—a photo finish in the 100-meter sprint finals. Five women finished within 0.06 seconds of each other. Gail won the gold medal and the title “Fastest Woman in the World.”

People around the world instantly recognized her for her huge smile and her even bigger fingernails. But just two years before that race, it seemed like Gail’s racing days were over.
