"It's unbelievable. I think about now I ended in Beijing, just feeling discouraged there. Four years later, to have all this happen, to really accomplish every goal that I set out, it such a blessing. London is very special to me." — U.S. sprinter Allyson Felix on winning three gold medals at the London Olympics, including one Saturday night in the women's 4x400 meters relay.
