About Allyson
In 2012 Felix won her long-awaited individual Olympic gold medal in the 200m, and became the first athlete since Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988 to win three gold medals in a single Olympic Games.  She made history at the 2009 IAAF World Outdoor Championships by becoming the first woman ever to win three world 200-meter titles. In 2007 Felix became the second woman in history to win three gold medals at one World Championships (200m, 4x100m and 4x400m). In 2005, she went undefeated in the 200m, winning the world title and recorded the three fastest times in the world. As an 18-year-old, she won her first Olympic medal in the women’s 200m at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and secured the world junior record at 22.18. Felix actually ran faster at a meet in Mexico City in 2003 (22.11), but meet organizers had not arranged for drug testing at the meet and the time wasn't ratified by the IAAF. Her father, Paul, is an ordained minister who teaches New Testament Greek at the Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, Calif. Her mother, Marlean, is an elementary school teacher. High school teammates called her “chicken legs” due to her long, spindly legs. She didn’t start running track until her freshman year of high school. Felix was a prep media sensation and a current star, having had front-page articles in Sports Illustrated and USA Today, among other publications.  She has a passion for fashion, having attended both New York and London Fashion Weeks in 2012.  She is active in Right to Play and USATF’s outreach program Win with Integrity.  In 2012, she was appointed to the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition and, along with USATF, has been an advocate of Let's Move Active Schools – a partnership among First Lady Michelle Obama, Nike and others aimed at integrating physical activity before, during, and after the school day.
