Nine-time Olympic medalist Allyson Felix is headed to her fifth Olympics after getting second place in the 400-meter final at the US Track and Field Olympic trials on June 20. We should have known the 35-year-old was going to qualify after seeing her ferocious game face before the race began. Although she was way back, Felix raced hard and made an astounding comeback in the last 50 meters! You can see the sheer joy on her face as she's celebrating with her husband and their daughter, Camryn.

After the race, Felix said, "It has been a fight to get here, and one thing I know how to do is fight, so I just wanted to do that all the way home." After Sanya Richards-Ross called her a "person who knows how to win," Felix added that making her fifth team is "so special." We can't wait to see her race!
