Best Answer

Through the 2008 Games in Beijing no woman athlete, American or other country, has won 5 Olympic gold medals in Track and Field. The most won by an American woman is 4 by Evelyn Ashford, 1 in the 100 meter dash and 3 in the 4x100 meter relay.

Three other women have won 4 Olympic gold medals in track and field ... Bärbel Wöckel of East Germany, Betty Cuthbert of Australia, and Fanny Blankers-Koen of Netherlands.
