Allyson is the only female track and field athlete to win six Olympic Gold Medals. The 35-year-old has been qualified for the women’s 400m in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She secured the second position by finishing the 400-meters in 50.02 seconds at the Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon. Her participation in the 400 meters is confirmed but she may run in 4*400 for both women and mixed gender.

“I just wanted to really show her, no matter what, that you do things with character, integrity, and you don’t give up,” Felix said. “And to me, whether that was winning, losing, no matter the outcome, I wanted to stay consistent with that. Having her as motivation through these past couple of years has just given me a whole new drive.”

Her Success in the Olympics

  • Tokyo Olympics 2020 is her fifth consecutive Olympics. She started off with the Olympics at the age of 18 in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens where she won the silver medal.
  • Once again in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, she won the silver medal for the 200m medal and gold medal for the 4*400m relay.
  • Her performances in the Olympics have been always fascinating. In the 2012 London Olympic Games, she won the gold medal for all forms except the 100 meters.
  • The last Olympics she participated in was the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games where she won the silver medal for the 400 and gold medal in both 4*100 m relay.

At the present time, she has won the most number of Olympic medals in the United States track and field history. Also if she successfully wins both the medals in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, then she will be leaving Carl Lewis behind and will become the most decorated American in the history of track and field.
