Allyson Felix Is Our New Olympic Crush
Move over Alex Morgan and Hope Solo, we’ve got a new gold medal crush. USA sprinter Allyson Felix grabbed the gold in the 200 meter on Wednesday, and ran her way right into our hearts.
The third time was the charm for Allyson Felix. She was able to beat out Jamaican runner Shelly Ann Fraser-Price for the gold medal at the 2012 London games. Not that we didn’t have our eyes on her before, but we really started to crush on her after that impressive run.
Allyson’s 2012 Olympic run began with a bit of controversy when her and another sprinter ended up tied for the final spot on the US team. Allyson ended up winning that spot, and it paid off. So congratulations to Allyson for finally making it happen! Also, she really makes those running outfits look good. Go USA!
