- Most decorated American track & field athlete EVER!
Wait, who is Carl Lewis? He's the amazing athlete whose medal record was broken at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics by Allyson Felix! She has appeared in 5 Olympic Games--beginning in Atlanta in 2004 when she was 18 years old. This wild woman doesn't leave anything on the track and has 11 medals to prove it! After her last race a message to her daughter is one we all need to hear: “No matter what it feels is stacked against you, you go out with character and integrity, you give your all, and that’s all anybody else can ask of you, and you’re proud with that.” For the record (the informational kind), she likes her coffee with cream and sugar.
