Specializing in high jump, Davis became the first black woman to win an Olympic gold medal at the 1948 London games, aged 25.She was also the only female American athlete to win gold in track and field at the same tournament.

Davis, who suffered a stroke in recent months, died aged 90 in her hometown of Albany, Georgia.

Watch her incredible jump here.
