Olympic Superstar Jackie Joyner-Kersee Visits Alabama

(MOBILE, AL.) It isn't everyday a Mobile County High School student gets to meet a 3 time Olympic champion. Track star and Olympic Icon Jackie Joyner Kersee was the guest speaker at the YWCA's Empowerment Summit at The Marriott Hotel. Taylor Mixon, a sophomore at Davidson High School was one of hundreds who lined up meet Kersee. Taylor, who is an aspiring track star in her own right got some pointers from the legendary track star on how to "go for the gold."

During her brief visit to The Port City I got a chance to chat briefly with this popular wife and mother being an Olympiad and what she thought of her first visit to The Gulf Coast?
