Allyson Felix: Six-time Olympic champion reveals she gave birth to daughter prematurely


Allyson Felix has won 11 World Championships gold medals, including two at London 2017

Six-time Olympic champion Allyson Felix has revealed that she gave birth to her daughter eight weeks premature last month.

The American, 33, had not publicly announced that she was pregnant.

Her daughter Camryn is still in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) after she had to be delivered by an emergency caesarean section on 28 November but Felix said she is “OK”.

“I’m so, so grateful,” said sprinter Felix in a first-person piece for ESPN.
