EUGENE, Ore. — Allyson Felix hasn't run her last race after all. The most decorated sprinter in U.S. history will return to the world championships to run in the prelims of the women's 4x400 relay this weekend. She says team officials coaxed her out of her brief retirement after she helped the mixed relay team win a bronze medal last Friday in what she had said was her last major race. At the Tokyo Olympics last year, she was on the gold-medal women's 4x400 relay along with Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad and Athing Mu.
