With a bronze medal in the women’s 400-meter final, Allyson Felix won her 10th career Olympic medal to draw level with Carl Lewis for the most medals by a track and field athlete in U.S. history. 

On Friday night in Tokyo, Felix put together the second-fastest race of her career in 49.46 seconds to win bronze. Felix takes sole possession of the title of most decorated female track and field athlete after breaking her tie with Merlene Ottey, who won nine medals for Jamaica in her career.
