(Video) Allyson Felix: Cream Of The Crop

If this week was the last time we get to see Allyson Felix represent the U.S.A. in an Olympic games let's remember her triumphs versus this week's 400-meter event where Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas dove across the finish line to claim the gold medal over Felix.

This year's Summer Olympics have introduced us to "New" stars like Simone Biles and Simone Manuel as well as allowing us to witness the greatness that is Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, and you can toss Allyson Felix into the mix.

With her second place finish in the 400-meter Felix became the most decorated American woman in track and field history. Felix broke a tie with the legendary Jackie Joyner-Kersee with the seventh medal of her Olympic career.

Track fans will never forget the 2012 games where Felix claimed three gold medals highlighted by the 4x100 relay team that in addition to Felix featured Tianna Madison, Bianca Knight, and (my boo from the 2012 games) Carmelita Jeter. That team went on to shatter the previous world record of 41.37 set in 1985 by East Germany with a time of 40.82.
