Allyson Felix Biography
Olympic sprinter, Allyson Felix was born November 18, 1985 and is a track and field sprint athlete, who competes internationally for the United States, primarily in the 200 meters. She also competes at the 100 meter and the 400 meter distances. She is a 3 time 200 meter world champion and a two-time Olympic silver medalist at the 200 meters. She also won a silver medal in the 400 meters at the 2011 world championships and a gold medal at the Beijing 2008 Olympics as a member of the United States' women's 4 × 400 meters team. As a participant in the US Anti-Doping Agency's "Project Believe" program, Felix is regularly tested to ensure that her body is free of performance-enhancing drugs.
In 2012, Felix returned to the Olympic Trials, the schedule of events virtually requiring she choose between attempting to qualify in the 100m or 400m. She chose the 100m and advanced to the final. In the final, she was the slowest out of the blocks, initially thought to be losing the third qualifying position by .001 of a second to Jeneba Tarmoh, who reacted out of the blocks .024 faster. Then officials ruled the race was a tie. There was to be a run off for the 3rd spot between Tarmoh and Felix, but Tarmoh pulled out of the 100-meter runoff that was to be held on Monday July 2, 2012.
In the 200m final at the Olympic Trials, Felix ran a personal best and a meet record of 21.69. Running the third fastest time an American has ever run and the fourth fastest time ever, Carmelita Jeter and Sanya Richards-Ross placed 2nd and 3rd and will join Felix in London.
In 2005, Felix received the Jesse Owens Award from USATF signifying the Athlete of the Year. In 2007, she won the award again. And won it for a third time in 2010.
