Congrats to Allyson Felix of the U.S. for winning the 200m race, with Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce snagging the silver and Carmelita Jeter third. Veronica Campbell-Brown failed to medal in what would have been her third Olympic appearance in the 200m race, taking fourth place. Jamaica-born Sanya Richards-Ross came in fifth. Allyson Felix has always been a graceful athlete and I am very happy she won.
