By now you must have heard of the Allyson Felix, who represented America in this year’s contest of champions the Rio Olympics. Before I mention anything else let me just say that Allyson Felix is an amazing athlete, a legend in her own right and one of the best track and field sprinters in my humble opinion, has ever existed. She is an amazing sportswoman and a great addition to the American team representing the country in the Rio Olympics.
After all is said and done, Allyson Felix has been an undisputed champion of the 400-meter race. In the Rio Olympics however her competitor Shaunae Miller, a Bahamian sprinter, who dove at the last moment to claim the gold, dethroned Allyson Felix, by beating her time by 0.07 seconds, can you imagine that? Now this has struck some controversy among the people of the internet, I would like to make it clear I take no sides, while I am obviously biased to Allyson Felix, I believe it was a good race and both women should be proud of the achievements they have accomplished on that day. They are representing their country, as the best of the best, how are they not celebrating already? These women are shining examples for everyone as to how you can always improve, always get faster and always do better. I tip my hat to them.
A lot of people are calling the dive into question and again I do not know if it is alright or otherwise, but regardless they win silver and gold. Allyson Felix has already won 7 medals in total, in the Olympics, 4 gold, count them 4 gold and 3 silvers including that of the Rio Olympics. I can’t imagine what type of training and nutrition diet she has gone through but it must be something to be able to get results like that. The 30 year old, at least until November, has been a representative of America in the Olympics since 2008, at the Beijing Olympics and up to the current 2016 Rio Olympics. With her stellar record it wouldn’t be a shock to see more of her in the next Olympics either.
Allyson Felix continues to be a legendary name in the track and field sport and perhaps as one of the most dominant runners in the world as well. She has so many medals not only from the Olympics, but many other world championships, regardless of what the result was for the 400 meter 2016 relay in the Rio Olympics, she is a champ in my book. I am still at awe of her record and how she can be this consistently amazing.
Again I am not taking sides, and I honestly think we should all just celebrate both of the athletes, in fact we should rejoice and thank all athletes participating. The hard work, blood, sweat and tears that they have shed to reach the Rio Olympics is nothing short of amazing, all this to represent their respective countries and hoping to break a record or two, I will continue to applaud all of you and pray for just victories and safe passage.
