As the world gets ready for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Oprah Winfrey took us down Olympic memory lane last night by sitting down with 10 legendary Olympians, including track-and-field stars Carl Lewis, Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Al Joyner; world-renowned gymnasts Bart Conner, Nadia Comaneci, Mary Lou Retton and Shawn Johnson; diver Greg Louganis; and world-record-breaking swimmers Janet Evans and Mark Spitz. Plus a bonus conversation with Bruce Jenner!

During the interviews these Olympic icons opened up about life after scoring a perfect 10, personal struggles and the lessons they learned from competing in the Olympics. The most emotional moment of the special was witnessing Mary Joyner, the daughter of Al Joyner and the late Florence Griffith-Joyner, open up to Oprah about how her mother’s death has impacted her life.
