Felix got into a Q/A session with Sanrio. She gave some great advice to all the young and passionate girls who want to achieve something. Felix also advised on various good values associated with sports.

“I’d encourage all young girls to participate in sports. It teaches you so many lessons, things like work ethic, working on a team, dealing with disappointment, all lessons that that you can apply to all different avenues of life, whatever you choose to do,” Allyson Felix said.

“So, one of my favorite Hello Kitty moments is when Hello Kitty Con came to Los Angeles, and I got to attend. I had the best time seeing all the exhibits and the history. I was just in heaven!,” Felix said.

While Felix is the most decorated sprinter in Olympics history, she is not the most decorated sprinter in history. She needs one more medal to become the most decorated female sprinter in history. How many will she win in Tokyo?
