Undisputed Queen of the Track
A supremely talented sprinter who has been competing at the highest level since she was 18, Allyson Felix had to wait until London 2012 before finally becoming an individual Olympic champion, outclassing her rivals to win gold in the 200m. A mainstay of the US women’s 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams, she now has more world championship and Olympic titles than any other female track athlete.
But behind the scenes, as you will hear on this video, Allyson has God as her number one priority.
“I have learned that track doesn’t define me. My faith defines me. I’m running because I have been blessed with a gift.”
“I grew up in a Christian home with amazing parents. My mom is great and I make sure that we pray together before every race. She helps me put everything in perspective and remind me of the real reason I run.”
Allyson Felix Talks about What She Values in the Video Interview:
Would you like to know God the way Allyson does? You can! It all starts with knowing Jesus and letting him transform you from the inside out. His love is amazing. You can start by praying this prayer:
Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life to You and ask You to come in as my Savior and Lord. Take control of my life. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.
It can start today!
