Jackie Joyner-Kersee

In 2001, Joyner-Kersee was named the "Top Woman Collegiate Athlete of the Past 25 Years" in a vote by NCAA schools. It's not hard to see why. She was a two-time national champion in the heptathlon at UCLA and, while still a student, won the silver medal in the event at the 1984 Olympics. She was also a four-year starter on the basketball team and named one of the school's 15 best players.
