The USA’s Allyson Felix takes a look back at her Olympic performances up to and including her gold medal triumph at the London 2012 Games.

In 2012 Felix won her long-awaited individual Olympic gold medal in the 200m, and became the first athlete since Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988 to win three gold medals in a single Olympic Games. The same year, she was appointed to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition and, along with USATF, has been an advocate of Let’s Move Active Schools – a partnership among First Lady Michelle Obama, Nike and others aimed at integrating physical activity before, during, and after the school day. Courtesy of Bigtime Fitness, take a look below at a top contender for the Rio 2016.
