NEW YORK – At USATF Gala Allyson Felix, a six-time Olympic gold medalist, whose three medals this summer in London made her the most decorated track and field athlete in world championship history, was surprised with a video highlighting her career, along with the Trailblazer Award.
“It’s amazing, because I felt I didn’t reach all of my goals,” said Felix, alluding to her silver medal in the 400-meter at the Rio Games.
“It’s always disappointing to work so hard and to come up short. But getting to watch the film of my accomplishments, and to walk away from the world championships with that honor, was really special to me,” she told teamusa.org.
