Allyson Felix’s Retirement Plan Has Already Started

Allyson Felix isn’t done yet.

When she stepped off the track at the Tokyo Games in 2021, she had just won her 11th career medal, surpassing Carl Lewis to become the most decorated American track and field athlete in Olympic history.

Felix, 36, had proved absolutely everything there ever was to prove. That her words could lead to widespread protections for pregnant athletes. That she could return to the Olympic podium after giving birth to her daughter, Camryn, in an emergency cesarean section at 32 weeks. That she could win those medals wearing shoes from her own brand.

After Tokyo, it would surely have made sense to hang up her spikes, to spend the next decades soaking in her accomplishments.
