Gail Devers


Born: 19th November, 1966.

American athlete Gail Devers is known for two things: her multiple Olympic achievements, and her insane nails. 

She's a pro at the 100 metres and the 100 metre hurdles, having won three gold medals: one at the 1992 Barcelona Games and two in Athens in 1996.

But the first thing you probably notice about Gail is her quirky beauty regime! The athletics star lets her nails grow so long they belong in an X-men movie. And nowhere else.
