Golden Girl

Allyson Felix is the first U.S. woman to win three Olympic gold medals in track and field since the late Florence Griffith Joyner and she couldn't be more humble. She told me she considers athletes like Flo Jo and Jackie Joyner-Kersee to be legends. Well, now she is a legend too and hopes to be a role model for kids, a real-life example of why you should always keep going after your dreams. Felix won the silver in 2004 in the 200-meters and again in 2008 but came back to win the gold in 2012, and also the gold in the 4x100m and 4x400m relays. She's heard from a range of celebrities including First Lady Michelle Obama and Magic Johnson. As for the celeb she'd most love to meet, that's easy -- she said Will Smith! Stay tuned for my interview with the track and field star coming soon on iVillage.com.
