Allyson Felix 2012 Olympics: Results, Analysis and More

Allyson Felix has a terrific opportunity to add more medals to the United States' haul thanks to her dominance on the track. She will be making her third Olympic appearance after debuting eight years ago at the age of 18.

The California native has been in the news a lot lately, but it's had more to do with a racing controversy than her actual performance. During the 100-meter qualifying final at the U.S. trials, she was judged to have tied Jeneba Tarmoh.

Both women were given the option to either have a run-off—with the winner earning the final spot—or to allow their fate to be decided by a coin flip.

Tarmoh eventually conceded the spot to Felix prior to the run-off, ending the drama.

That means Felix will take part in four competitions in London. The three-time medalist will take part in the 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 4x100-meter women's relay and 4x400-meter women's relay. The latter is an event in which the Americans, four years ago, won gold.

Felix's other Olympic medals are both silver, and from the last two 200-meter competitions. She finished second behind Veronica Campbell-Brown in both 2004 and 2008.

Let's take a look at Felix's schedule in London and break down her chances of taking home a medal in each of the events.

Keep checking back throughout the rest of the Games as the slideshow will be updated with her results.
