But while she's cheering on the Redbirds, she's also trying to keep kids active.
Jackie Joyner-Kersee talked with Randi Naughton and Glenn Zimmerman about an upcoming event.
It's a Gala to support the Jackie Joyner-Kersse Foundation. "Hold the Torch High for Kids" takes place on October 22 at 6 p.m. at Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark.
