Serena Williams Bewitches to Australian Open. The American tennis player is looking for her 24th Grand Slam title. In Australia, number 11 in the women’s world rankings appears at the top of her physical figure, but to dazzle spectators (those lucky enough to attend America’s matches and those from home) it was especially the tracksuits by Williams.
Serena Williams, who also has her own clothing line, shows off a very original and distinctive Nike track suit. Not everyone knows that the tennis player outfits were designed to honor another great heroine, her compatriot: Flo Joe.
The brightly colored Serena Williams tracksuit has a very special feature: it leaves a bare leg for the tennis champion, just like the uniforms worn by famous Florentine Griffith Joyner, the late enemy queen.
Who was Flo Joe?
An American athlete, Flo-Go was a three-time Olympic champion and was known for her daring track style. Be it different dresses or his long manicure on the thumbs, often in the colors of the American flag, the American ace has managed to be a symbol of fashion, as he manages to blend his passion for fashion and sports.
At the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, Florence Griffith Joyner won a silver medal in the 200 meters. But she also drove everyone crazy with her long, coated nails. Florence Griffith Joyner, who still holds the world record in the 100 and 200 meters, also won three golds (100, 200 and 4 x 100) and one silver (4 x 400) at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.
In addition to the brightly colored single-leg jumpsuit, Flo-Go also wore a hoodie for speed skating at the 1987 World Athletics Championships and during the 1988 Olympic Trials in Indianapolis, she appeared in a lace jumpsuit.
Serena Williams quotes
“Flo Joe, who was a great athlete, inspired a great athlete when I was little, I was inspired to look at her costumes, which always changed, her clothes were always great. The Nike team has already thought of this design inspired by Flo-Jo. When I saw that I was like, “Oh my God, that’s so bright. It’s so wild, I’m still arguing about which one is the best.”“Stated Serena Williams.
