Allyson FELIX biographie

There aren’t many sprinters that get to break Usain Bolt’s world records, but United States athlete Felix is one of them. Back in September she pocketed her 12th gold medal at IAAF World Athletics Championships – one more than the great Jamaican managed in his storied career. Not that it is going to her head. She responded with a one-word post on Twitter that simply read: “humbled”.

Felix has an extraordinary roll of honours. At 200m, she is the 2012 Olympic gold medal winner, and a three-time world champion – maintaining the title from 2005 through to 2009. She’s also won five Olympic gold medals as part of USA relay teams: three 4x400m titles (at Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016), and two at 4x100m (London 2012 and Rio 2016). She’s the only female track star to win six golds.

Felix, who turned 34 in November 2019, heads towards Tokyo 2020 looking to make her fifth consecutive Olympic Games – and her first as a mother. She gave birth in November 2018, after battling preeclampsia and undergoing an emergency C-section to deliver her daughter. She’s aware that this could be her biggest challenge yet, but there’s no way that a competitor like Felix is going to give up on this dream.

“If I come back and I’m just not the same, if I can’t make a fifth Olympic team, I’m gonna know that I fought, that I was determined, and that I gave it my absolute all,” she says. “And if it doesn’t end up the way I imagined in my head, it’ll be OK. I just have to go for it, because that’s just simply who we are now.”

Few will bet against the athlete, who describes her speed as a gift from God, making it to Japan. “For me, my faith is the reason I run,” she says. “I definitely feel I have this amazing gift that God has blessed me with, and it's all about using it to the best of my ability.”
