Allyson Felix will run in her 10th World Athletics Championships after being named to Team USA on Tuesday.

The 18-time world championship medalist – which stands as the most in history – was named to the mixed relay team. The selection comes after Felix finished sixth in the 400 meters at last month’s U.S. national championships and failed to qualify in any individual events.

Felix has been vocal about this being her last season, announcing in April that she plans to retire.

“I have given everything I have to running and for the first time I’m not sure if I have anything left to give,” Felix wrote in an Instagram post announcing her retirement. “I want to say goodbye and thank you to the sport and people who have helped shape me the only way I know how—with one last run.”

At the 2020 Olympics, Felix became the most decorated American track and field athlete in history, winning her 11th Olympic medal and surpassing the 10 medals won by Carl Lewis.

Absent from the roster was Sha’Carri Richardson, who failed to advance to the finals in either one of her events last month.

The world championships begin on July 15 and run through July 24 in Eugene, Oregon.
