Can a woman beat Usain Bolt?

Allyson Felix on the new 4x400m mixed relay: Allyson Felix, an American superstar, has eclipsed Usain Bolt as the most successful athlete in IAAF athletics world championships ever. The 33-year-old won her 12th global championship in Doha in the mixed 4x400m relay, which will make its Olympic debut in Tokyo in 2020. The Jamaican Bolt has nine victories at the World Championships.

Bolt's manager, Lamine Diack, said: "I don't think anyone can beat Usain Bolt in a sprint race." But Felix responded by saying: "Yes, a female can beat him". She added that she was honoured to have been able to compete against such a great champion. "I'm very happy and proud to be among the best in the world," she said.

Felix is one of the most successful athletes in the history of American track and field. She has eight gold medals and two bronze from World Championships and Olympics. Her latest victory came in Rio de Janeiro last year when she took home the silver in the 400m hurdles. She remains the only American to have ever beaten Bolt in a global final. The fastest man on earth has not lost since then and it is believed he will retire after this season's World Championships in Japan next month.

A record 8,000 people turned up to see Felix win in Beijing in 2008 - the largest crowd to witness an athletics event outside a major sports festival. Her other seven wins have each drawn larger crowds than that.

Who defeated Bolt recently?

Allyson Felix is a sprinter. She has won three gold medals and one silver at the Summer Olympics. The only person who has beaten her in an Olympic race is Justin Gatlin in the 100-meter final in 2004. He earned $1 million for first place.

Bolt surrendered his crown last month when he failed to win a medal at the World Championships. His best chance of picking up another came from the relay side, but America's Dina Asher-Smith outpaced him in the 100 meters and Michael Johnson Jr. did the same in the 200 meters to ensure that Felix became the first back-to-back winner since 1956-60.

Asher-Smith became the first woman to ever win the 100 meters at three different Summer Olympics when she accomplished this feat in Rio de Janeiro last year, London 2012 and Beijing 2008. The 20-year-old also holds the British record in the event with her personal best of 10 seconds flat. Felix is second with a time of 11.41 seconds.

Johnson was the top American runner at the Worlds last year but he finished outside the top eight this time around.

Is there a woman faster than Usain Bolt?

Never miss an opportunity. "The world's fastest female sprinter is American runner Allyson Felix, who has more gold medals than Usain Bolt." Her personal best in the 400-meter dash is 49.26 seconds. That's less than a second off of Bolt's world record!

Bolt's peak speed reaches 25 miles per hour. That's why he can run 100 meters in 9 seconds flat or cross the finish line first in the 100-meter sprint at the Olympics.

Felix also runs in the Olympics and has three gold medals. She beats out fellow American Beverly Johnson by eight hundredths of a second (0.08) for all three golds. That's better than any other athlete in history!

In fact, no one else has even come close since Felix's victories. In 2008, Johnson became the first double gold medalist when she captured gold in both the 400 meter and 200 meter races at the Beijing Games. This year, another American named Carmelita Jeter won the silver medal in the 400 meter race at the London Games. She was just two hundredths of a second behind Felix!

So, yes, there is a woman who runs faster than Bolt - but it's not because she's male. It's because she's smarter and works harder.

Who is the only female track and field athlete to win six gold medals?

Felix is the only female track and field athlete to have won six Olympic gold medals, and she is tied for the most decorated female Olympian in track and field history, with nine Olympic medals. Felix is also the most decorated athlete in IAAF World Championships history, having won 16 medals in his career. He was also the most decorated male athlete at the 2004 Athens Olympics, having taken home eight gold medals.

Felix Savaneau was born on January 4th, 1970 in Montreal, Quebec. She started running when she was five years old and began training regularly two years later. Her first major international competition was the 1992 Barcelona Games, where she competed in the 100 m, 200 m, and 400 m events. She earned three gold medals and one silver medal, becoming the first female track and field athlete to win three gold medals in one event at a single Olympics.

At the 1996 Atlanta Games, Felix improved her record by winning four more gold medals - in the 100 m, 200 m, 400 m, and 4x100 m relay events. This makes her the first female track and field athlete to win five individual gold medals at a single Olympics.

In 2000 Sydney Games, Felix added another two gold medals to her collection - this time in the long jump and triple jump events. With these six golds, she has become the first female track and field athlete to win six gold medals at a single Olympics.
