Allyson Felix enjoyed tremendous success on the ultimate world track and field stage last year, winning three gold medals at the London Olympics. So it would be reasonable for her to want to relax a little this year and maybe skip the Penn Relays. But that's not part of the mind-set for the 27-year-old Californian. It's a World Championship year, it's the start of the outdoor track season. And it's the Penn Relays, and there's no other place where Felix would rather be. "I love the Penn Relays," Felix said Friday at a news conference one day before the annual USA vs. The World races at Franklin Field.

LONDON - Allyson Felix is not Marion Jones, which is good in obvious ways and not so good in other ways. We know now that Jones' incredible performance in Sydney was just that - not credible - because of performance-enhancing drugs. Felix remains free and clear of suspicion. But it's a little like baseball. We know Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire cheated. We're pretty sure Sammy Sosa did, too. The Steroid Era is gone, and it took those mind-blowing 60- and 70-home run seasons with it. Jones was the Bonds of her sport's own Steroid Era. She was even implicated by the same investigation into Victor Conte's Balco lab. But even if we can't really respect her larger-than-life performances, we can still miss the thrills and excitement.

Shawn Crawford blew away the field in the 200-meter finals at the U.S. track and field championships in a wind-aided time of 19.73 seconds yesterday in Eugene, Ore. Allyson Felix joined Crawford as a 200-meter champion. A heavy favorite to win her fifth national title, Felix finished in 22.02 (also wind-aided) to edge Muna Lee. Marshevet Hooker finished third. Crawford, 31, beat Charles Clark by 27-hundredths of a second. Wallace Spearmon finished third to earn the final spot on the U.S. team heading to the world championships later this summer.

DAEGU, South Korea - Fatigued, Allyson Felix faltered down the stretch in her bid for a fourth straight 200-meter world title. Energized, LaShawn Merritt rallied on the last turn in the 1,600-meter relay to win the gold medal, avoiding an embarrassing loss. It was that kind of night Friday for the United States at the world championships: highs (long jumper Dwight Phillips winning a fourth title) and lows (the mighty shot putters shut out of a medal). There was also Carmelita Jeter adding a silver medal in the 200 to her gold in the 100 earlier in the week.

DES MOINES, Iowa - Mentally, Tyson Gay is now in a good place. Physically, too. That's the healing power of running fast at nationals. Once and for all, Gay put to rest any questions about his surgically repaired hip as he completed the 100-200 sprint double yesterday at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, winning the 200 meters in 19.74 seconds. It is the fastest time in the world this season. Gay also beat Justin Gatlin in the 100 on Friday in a season-leading time of 9.75.

Six of the seven women who won gold medals for the United States in the 2012 Olympic relays will compete Saturday in the USA vs. the World races at the Penn Relays, USA Track and Field announced Tuesday. Allyson Felix, who ran the second leg in the 4x100-meter and 4x400-meter relays in London, is coming to Franklin Field, seeking to add to an incredible record that has seen her be a part of 13 victorious relay teams for the United States at the carnival over the last eight years.

Allyson Felix is young (22), bright (she will get her degree in elementary education from Southern California on May 16), and talented (she is the best U.S. bet for Olympic gold at 200 meters in Beijing this summer). She is also committed to proving to the skeptics and the nonbelievers that someone can be successful in track and field without using performance-enhancing drugs. Felix, who will compete today in the USA vs. the World races at the Penn Relays, is a participant in Project Believe, a program developed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to improve the accuracy of doping tests and provide baseline body chemistry figures for track athletes.

DAEGU, South Korea - In a fenced-off area below the stadium, American training partners Carmelita Jeter and Jason Richardson crossed paths, exchanging a quick embrace before going separate ways. They were two unlikely gold medalists at the world championships Monday. Jeter because, well, nobody beats the Jamaicans at 100 meters at major meets these days. Richardson because he was an afterthought in the highly anticipated 110 hurdles matchup in what could prove to be the race of the meet.

LONDON - By the time Allyson Felix was done with her part, her third gold medal of the Olympics was all but hanging around her neck. Staking the U.S. team to more than a 2-second lead at the halfway point Saturday night, then watching Sanya Richards-Ross bring home the blowout victory, Felix added the 4x400-meter relay gold to the titles she won earlier in the 4x100 relay and 200-meter sprint. "By the time I got the stick," Richards-Ross said, "it was basically a victory lap. " The United States finished in 3 minutes, 16.87 seconds - good for a 3.36-second rout over Russia, the biggest margin in the final of the long relay at the Olympics since East Germany beat the United States by 3.58 seconds in 1976.

LONDON - In the biggest competition of her life, long jumper Brittney Reese cost herself a precious attempt. "I messed myself all up," Reese said. "I was too busy cheering for Allyson Felix. " That's how much people like Felix, who finally completed her personal quest for a gold medal in the 200 meters here Wednesday night. The fresh-faced 26-year-old from Los Angeles really is just that nice. Maybe too nice. Maybe that was the problem in Athens and Beijing, where she took silver instead of gold.

LONDON - No more heartbreak for Allyson Felix. No more silver, either. Denied twice on the world's biggest stage, Felix won the Olympic gold medal she's been yearning for, taking the 200 meters Wednesday night to fill the last, and biggest, hole in her otherwise stellar resume. Felix won the race in 21.88 seconds, topping Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who won the 100 4 nights earlier, by .21 seconds. American Carmelita Jeter added bronze to go with her silver in the 100 meters.

EUGENE, Ore. - It will be remembered as the most anticipated race never run: the runoff that turned into a walk away to conclude the U.S. track trials. Jeneba Tarmoh conceded the final Olympic spot in the 100 meters rather than meet training partner Allyson Felix at the starting line on Monday to break a third-place tie. She notified USA Track and Field early in the day of her intention to withdraw from the evening race, not specifying why she was stepping aside. In an e-mail sent through her agent to USATF, Tarmoh said: "I understand that with this decision I am no longer running the 100m dash in the Olympic Games and will be an alternate for the event.
