Allyson Felix wins three gold medals at London Olympics
American sprinter Allyson Felix has been a golden girl at virtually every major meet that matters. But until this summer, she had yet to show her dominance at the Olympics. That all changed when Felix won three gold medals in London including her signature event (200-meter) and both sprint relays (4×100, 4×400).
“(Competing for Christ) makes a huge difference,” she once told FCA Magazine. “When you recognize that your athletic career is in God’s hands, it can keep you from getting caught up in the winning is everything philosophy that so many coaches and athletes follow.”
