In her final individual race in her final Olympics Games, American track star @allysonfelix won her 10th Olympic medal—a bronze in the 400-m—in Tokyo on Aug. 6 to pass Merlene Ottey of Jamaica as the most decorated female track and field athlete of all time, writes @sgregory31. Felix is also now tied with Carl Lewis for the most medals ever won by an American track and field athlete. (Felix now has six golds, three silvers and one bronze; Lewis won nine golds and a silver). Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas took gold with a time of 48.36 seconds, Marileidy Paulino of the Dominican Republic took silver with a time of 49.20 seconds and Felix finished with a time of 49.46 seconds. Felix should have another opportunity to medal in Tokyo and break Lewis’ American record; she’s set to participate in the 4×400-m relay final on Saturday, a race the U.S. has won at every Olympics since the 1996 Games in Atlanta.
