Allyson Felix

Allyson Felix is a track and field sprint athlete who won Olympic gold, two Olympic silver medals, and three world championship golds in the 2012 summer Olympics in the 200 meter race. In the 100 meter and 400 meter races at the summer games, Felix won three Olympic gold medals as a member of the United States’ women’s relay teams — two at 4×400 meters and one as part of the world-record 4×100 meter team. The three gold medals Felix took home at the 2012 Summer Olympics are the most a female track athlete has won since 1988, and the time she clocked as part of the 4 x 400 was the 3rd fastest time in Olympic history.
