From the time we make our first bucket or run for our first touchdown our minds are captivated with this one thing. This one thing is what all aspiring athletes push for from the pee-wee leagues to the highest ranks of professional sports. It is the reason why we spend countless hours in the gym, sleepless nights watching film trying to find an edge, and go through the rigorous mental challenges that present themselves to all truly dedicated athletes; and still it alludes even the greatest of athletes. To be called “CHAMPION”!

Just imagine running off the basketball court, crowd screaming, after the National Championship game with the illustrious title of Champion. And soon after you leave the locker room the excitement and glory of the hoop dreams begin to fade, you enter a boxing ring; only to dethrone the reigning title holder and confiscate the title of “Champion”. Not many even dream this high, but Ms. Jackson has lived it.

Giana R. Jackson, known to most as Gigi, has always been accompanied with title of “Champion”. It would be easier to say that one can not be mentioned without the other. For the last 20 plus years Gigi has been a great inspiration and role model to her hometown of Columbus, Ohio, and the athletic world as well.

Early on it was easy to see that Ms. Jackson was headed for greatness. Attending “Champion” Middle School, Gigi lead her team to an amazing 10-0 season crowning her with her first championship. Just getting started, Gigi would continue to define her greatness by leading her AAU team to the State Championship.

Following with a multitude of basketball titles and awards, Gigi played a major role in the Ohio State Women’s Basketball Big Ten Championship in 1992. Shortly after graduation she became an immediate contender and champion boxer. Gigi took league and team MVP with the Columbus Comets, a women’s semi-professional football team, as a brief break from the boxing ring, which she has made home.

Gigi Jackson’s athletic resume sits in the same class of many great athletes. Some of her awards and accomplishments include:
