Allyson Felix, Track and Field (Sprinter)
Felix, a nine-time Olympic medalist who surpassed Usain Bolt's record for most IAAF World Championship gold medals only 10 months after giving birth, wrote for Time about the Olympics being postponed. She said, "At a time like this, it is hard not to focus on the loss, to not think about what could have been. That is something that can be hard about having audacious dreams. . . . This has been a sobering reminder that we are not owed our dreams, those dreams do not come free and you do not accomplish them alone." She went on to discuss the sacrifices she's made, especially in the last two years and wrote, "I still hope to experience the feeling of standing on that podium in 2021 and I hope my journey to try to get back there will inspire you to keep moving forward."
