Allyson Felix, a track and field athlete from the United States, won the gold in the 200-meter sprint yesterday, but that's not all she wants to be known for. As a Christian athlete, Felix attends church, studies the Bible and hopes people around the world will be influenced by her faith. Read more about her beliefs in this About.com interview.
Allyson Felix has accomplished a lot at a young age. During her teens she was labeled the fastest girl on the planet. As a Christian athlete, she has set and met some very high goals. With two silver medals and one gold already from previous Olympics, Allyson hopes to further her achievements at the 2012 London Olympics. Yet, there's another finish line Allyson has her eyes set on in this life, and therefore, becoming more Christ-like is a daily goal.
Growing up in a strong Christian home with a pastor as a father, Allyson is not afraid to stand up for her faith, which she says is the most important aspect of her life.
