    Allyson Felix is pretty awesome…..very first question was specifically about her, but her response was a lot of “we” or “our”. That is pretty humble and gracious on her part.

    Allyson Felix is a fine @$$ women whoever is tapping this bombshell sprinter is getting a run for their equipment.

    Allyson Felix is truly one of the GOATs! She doesn’t get the attention or respect she deserves.

    the queen of USA Track & Field 👑. going to miss her when she retires, but excited to see what she does next! also, 4×400 or 4×100’s the best event

    *she’s a runner, she a trackstar*

  12. MissNelly

    July 21, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    I’m glad she told the truth about the relay question considering she has been chosen questionably over done others.
    Nice video! She deserves her flowers considering she’s near retirement.

    So true, I wish the US loved Track & Field like I do! It will be my number #1 sport forever… Man I ran the 400m through college, the pain is real but it makes you a stronger person.

  18. Matthew Schell

    July 21, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    In high school I ran 1600m and 3200m because no one else really wanted to. I was 6′, 180-190 lbs. I was like twice the size of most of the people I ran against.

  19. Andrea Samardzija

    July 21, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    See, I wanted to know why Sha’Carri Richardson wasn’t on the relay team. I mean I assumed they’d already decided on the relay team beforehand ( a fact confirmed by the article I clicked on to make sure I didn’t misspell her name) but I also wanted to know why she wasn’t on the relay team if she’s so fast and that makes sense.

    Man, I love listening to Allyson speak. So intelligent and humble. 👏👏👏

    I just noticed something and now I can’t un-notice it. But the dates on the tweets are all over the place. A lot of them are really old questions, with all the answers done at the same time on 2017? And heck there’s a 2021 question at 8:25 and the response graphic 8:56 again re-uses the 2017 response date.
    Of course you can just chalk this up to the graphics team, but it sorta irks me.

  47. Benjamin Shulman

    July 23, 2021 at 12:16 am

    How fast can sprinters run a mile?

  48. Mariah Ellis

    July 23, 2021 at 12:25 am

    After all the crap about the 400, someone said… “Let’s add the 500m”🤣

  49. M Safrons

    July 23, 2021 at 12:30 am

    I don’t run unless something is chasing me

    You guys really need to get Eliud Kipchoge on this show.

    July 23, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Queeeen! 👸🏽 The answer is “YES– yes, I am the Beyonce of Track & Field!”. Ooooorrrr, maybe Beyonce is the Allyson Felix of music. 😏🤷🏽‍♀️😁

    I am a Norwegian. Allyson has been my favorite female sprinter for a long time. If you wonder why, just look at her and listen to her. What a lovely woman!

  53. nvr2serious cc

    July 23, 2021 at 10:49 am

    She has that most beautiful smile, kinda looks like Alisha Keys….never heard her before this, she is cool!!!

    Allyson Felix is one of best doesn’t get enough attention

    I became track & field fan when I ran in HS. Watching a good 400m runner is something else. Watch runners kick & turn on the jets for last 100m or 200m is wild.
    400m & 200m & 800m are still my favorite races to watch.

  57. Addalice Flo

    July 23, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    I love you Allyson!!!

  58. Brigid M

    She is just so chill and so articulate. Love her. Hope she wins a relay gold this year.

  59. Money Hammer

    July 23, 2021 at 2:30 pm

    I don’t even follow track but still remember how awesome that 2012 relay team was. Carmelita Jeter pointing the baton at the world record time should be a way more famous sports photo than it is.

  60. Abdou R Jawara

    July 23, 2021 at 3:02 pm

    How about when the deer 🦌hit at the end.. 400 m

    Hope she gets a chance to run at least in the prelims of a relay and gets another medal.

  64. Ready.Set. Bake!

    July 23, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    She is the A-L-L-Y-S-O-N 🥇F-E-L-I-X! Put some respect on her name and don’t compare her to people.

  65. y1521t21b5

    July 23, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Refused to back down to _Nike._ Good for her. *Such an elegant runner. One of the ones that just seem to glide over the track!*

  66. claudiamador

    July 23, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    She’s finally getting the attention in pop culture that she deserves 🗣🗣🗣 always loved her and can’t wait to see her next achievement 🥳

    Such a beautiful and humble soul. I hope she does well in her final Olympics.

    It has been common for distance runners to cut their weight, because they’re trying to move less mass. But it can lead to eating disorders or dysmorphia, and will reduce stamina if emphasized too much.
