Biography

Allyson Felix is the most decorated female track and field athlete in Olympic history, a true great of the sport.

Felix will retire at the end of the 2022 season, with an extraordinary roll of honours in women's athletics. Over 200m, she is the 2012 Olympic gold medal winner, and a two-time Olympic silver medallist and a three-time world champion – maintaining the title from 2005 through to 2009. She’s also won six Olympic gold medals as part of USA relay teams: four 4x400m titles (at Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 in 2021, and two at 4x100m (London 2012 and Rio 2016). She’s the only female track star to win seven golds.

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 2019 she pocketed her 12th gold medal at the World Athletics Championships – one more than the great Jamaican managed in his storied career. Not that it went to her head. She responded with a one-word post on Twitter that simply read: “humbled”. She added a 13th crown days later, her 18th medal at the world championships outdoors making her the most decorated athlete ever, and also owns a World Indoor Championship gold.

"Everyone sees the glory moments, but they don't see what happens behind the scenes.”
