Over the weekend Allyson Felix took home her second gold medal at the 10-day world championships in London, making her the most decorated athlete at the IAFF games.

Felix, who holds the record of being the only female track and field athlete to ever win six gold medals, won gold in the 1,600-meter relay a day after winning the same in the 400 relay. She earned a bronze medal in the 400-meter race to give her 16 in her career. Famed Olympian Usain Bolt finished his career with 14.

You go girl!

If you’re wondering where the 31-year-old track star keeps her illustrious medals, she doesn’t. Her parents have them.

“I really don’t know what they do with them,” she joked. “I guess they look at them sometimes. They’re really proud, she told ESPN.com.

And we’re proud of you Allyson! Congratulations!
