Allyson Felix

2021 Speaker

ALLYSON FELIX is an Olympic gold medalist who stepped on the world stage as a passionate 18 year old in her first Olympic Games. She has redefined athletics as she continues to cement her iconic status on and off the track. Her interest in the sport began watching her older brother, Wes, run. However, she did not try out for the school track team until her freshman year at Los Angeles Baptist High School in North Hills. Felix has amassed an incredible 13 global titles, 10 United States Championships, 9 Olympic medals, and a World Record. She is the most decorated track and field Olympian in history. Felix has proven herself a force on the track, but has still made time to graduate with an elementary education degree from the University of Southern California. She also has a heart for her community and serves as an ambassador for Right to Play and Play Works, as well as being a member of The President’s Council on Fitness, Sport, and Nutrition. Felix has recently turned her attention to helping the NFL’s Nnamdi Asomugha provide Los Angeles area teens with tools to prepare themselves for higher education through their ACTS College Summit. Her determination is now carrying over to the business sector where she is an investor in a plant based protein bar company and serves as an advisor to a fitness technology startup. In June of 2021, during the Olympic trials, Felix announced the launch of her new company, Saysh, a footwear and lifestyle brand specifically designed for women. @allysonfelix
