INDIANAPOLIS – USATF has formally petitioned the IAAF to amend the competition schedule for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, requesting that a change be made to allow for Allyson Felix to double in the 200 and 400 m next summer.

"We did receive an official request today from USATF," Paul Hardy, competitions director for the IAAF, told Reuters in an email.

"This will be reviewed in the next few days."
