Allyson Felix is headed to Tokyo.
The 35-year-old sprinter qualified for her fifth Olympics on Sunday with her family, including daughter Camryn, cheering her on.
Felix ran from lane eight in the 400m final, motoring down the race’s home stretch to capture a second-place finish. Her time of 50.2 seconds was a season-best for Felix.
