EXCLUSIVE: U.S. Olympic Sprinter Allyson Felix's Gold Medal-Winning Workout
After missing out on the gold medal in her individual 200m Olympic sporting event in both 2004 and 2008, taking home the silver both times, Team USA's Allyson Felix, 26, stepped up her game and raced her way to the gold.
"In preparation for the games," Felix told Uinterview in our exclusive with her, "I'm training right around six days a week, five hours a day, and that's time spent on the track doing speed workouts, endurance stuff, and I spend three hours there and two hours in the gym doing plyometrics, free weights, Olympic lifts and all that good stuff."
All that "good stuff" got Felix where she wanted to be, holding three gold medals at the end of the 2012 London games, in the previously elusive 200m final, as well as two team events — the women's 4x100 relay and the women's 4x400 relay.
Now that Felix has a chance to unwind from the intense Olympic competition and tough training regimen she put herself through, she has an idea of what she will be splurging on. "Ben & Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Chunk ice cream," is her substance of choice, she told us. "I cannot wait."
