Estimate: $200+

Description

Appealing original glossy 12 x 6.75 control room panoramic photo of Florence Griffith-Joyner sprinting to the finish line during the women's 100 metres race at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Indianapolis, where she established a World Record of 10.49 seconds, which remains the World Record more than 30 years later. Reverse bears Agfa watermarks. In fine condition, with a couple of small surface creases. Flo-Jo was practically unstoppable at the XXIV Olympiad in South Korea, earning three gold medals in the 100 m, 200 m, and the 4 x 100 m, setting World and Olympic records in the process. This is a 'photo finish' photo, the type used to determine placings in close races.
