Allyson Felix team Bridgestone Olympic athlete

About Allyson

Allyson Felix didn’t begin competing in track and field until high school, late by most sporting standards. Today, she is the most decorated athlete in track and field history and a four-time Olympian (2004, 2008, 2012, 2016) for Team USA. Over the course of her storied career, Felix has won nine Olympic medals (six gold, three silver), 16 world championship titles, and still holds a world record as a member of the U.S. 4x100-meter relay team at the Olympic Games London 2012. While she has competed in the 100-meter, 200-meter, 400-meter, and the 100- and 400-meter relay events, she now focuses on the 400-meter and team relays. Felix pursues her passion with determination both on and off the track, and has said her work with children is just as important as her athletic accomplishments. The 33-year-old currently serves as a board member for Right to Play, which raises awareness for underserved children in developing regions. Felix and her husband welcomed their first child – a daughter – in November 2018, giving her new motivation as she returns to training for Tokyo 2020.
