LOS ANGELES (USA): Allyson Felix has hinted she is planning to compete through until the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, informs Sport24. “Yes, I think I want to do it. I am still excited about the sport,” said Felix on Tokyo 2020 which would be her fifth Olympics.
RunBlogRun Opines: Allyson Felix has been a professional athlete since she was 18, way back in 2003. She was the first of a generation of athletes who tried that go pro real young thing, and she, arguably, was the most successful. Allyson Felix can race in her sleep, and most of the time, win.
Okay, I have to say it. Best women’s race in Rio was the women’s 400 meters. And Allyson Felix took the silver, after battling Shaunae Miller. That silver was probably the hardest earned medal in Felix’s career. It was also one of the most exciting races as both Miller and Felix were totally wiped out, having given their all. Also, thought NBC was totally off on their comments on Ms. Miller’s leap at the finish. It was not unique or bordering un sports person like. Just go back to Klaus Peter Hilldebrand in 1976 Montreal Olympics, or Jenna Prandini in the 200 meters at the U.S. Trials in 2016.
