This medal means so much,” Felix told NBC after the race. “I knew that I still wanted to go and I had more to give, even though I was told that was it for me…For my last [individual] run, I just wanted to go with it and give myself a shot.”

Felix now joins U.S. wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock, U.S gymnast Simone Biles and Sunie Lee who all made history at the 2021 olympics!
