Team USA's Allyson Felix won her 11th Olympic medal and seventh gold, becoming the most decorated US track and field athlete in Olympics history, after the United States won gold in the women’s 400m sprint relay Saturday.
Felix overtook sprint legend Carl Lewis' haul of 10 medals. She remains one short of Finland's Paavo Nurmi all-time track and field record of 12 medals.
The US team of Felix, Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad and Athing Mu stormed away to the win, with Poland taking home the silver with a national record and Jamaica securing the bronze.
"The first was a very, very long time ago [in Athens 2004] when everything was new," the 35-year-old Felix told reporters. "And this one everything is different but in a good way. I am so pleased it was running with these amazing women."
