Allyson Felix became the most decorated women's track and field athlete on Friday.

The American runner captured her 10th medal in her fifth Summer Olympics during the women's 400-meter final inside the Tokyo Olympic Stadium. 

Felix took bronze in a race that saw Shaunae Miller-Uibo from the Bahamas repeat as the gold-medal winner. 

The 35-year-old Felix also tied Carl Lewis for the most medals won by an American track and field athlete. She should have a chance to eclipse Lewis in the women's 4x400-meter relay on Saturday. 

While one of the American Olympic legends set a new record, a member of the next generation of stars won a gold medal in thrilling fashion.

Wrestler Gable Steveson, who dominated the NCAA circuit earlier this year, won his first Olympic gold medal in the final seconds of his title bout to create one of the most memorable moments of the Olympics. 

Felix and Steveson helped the United States get closer to the century mark of medals. The Americans ended Day 14 with 98 total medals. They are still chasing China for the most golds. The Asian nation leads that competition by five with two days of competition left. 

The full updated medal table can be found here on the Olympics' official website.

Allyson Felix Earns 10th Olympic Medal 

Felix entered Tokyo with six gold and three silver medals from the last four Olympics. 

On Friday, the 35-year-old earned her first-ever bronze medal in the 400-meter event in which she took silver in Rio de Janeiro.

ALLYSON FELIX WINS BRONZE, GIVING HER MEDAL NO. 10 🥉 🐐 She ties Carl Lewis for the most medals won by an American track & field athlete! https://t.co/S9fy3N58cR

Felix's time of 49.46 seconds was the fastest number she put down on the track since 2015, per NBC Sports' Tim Layden: 

Tim Layden @ByTimLayden

Allyson Felix's time of 49.46 is the fastest she's run since 2015, before she gave birth to her daughter. Also, at age 35, no woman has ever run faster older.

The bronze was the 10th medal earned by Felix in Olympic competition. She broke a tie with Jamaica's Merlene Ottey for the most medals by a woman in Olympic track and field history. 

Felix's first Olympic medal came in the 200 meters at the 2004 Athens Games. She earned two medals in Beijing, four in London and three in Rio de Janeiro. 

She has five gold medals in the 4x100-meter and 4x400-meter relay events. She has a chance to add to that haul on Saturday in the 4x400-meter relay. 

The Americans have a good chance to win gold if they put their "A" team on the track. Tokyo gold medalists Sydney McLaughlin and Athing Mu, as well as Dalilah Muhammad, who took second behind McLaughlin in the 400-meter hurdles, are the top candidates to join Felix on the relay. 

If Felix is a part of the 4x400-meter team and it wins a medal, she will leave Tokyo as the most decorated American track and field athlete of all time. She is tied with Lewis for 10 medals right now. 


Gable Steveson Wins Gold In Dramatic Fashion

Steveson's terrific 2021 on the wrestling mat continued on Friday.

The University of Minnesota wrestler added the Olympic gold medal to his Big Ten and NCAA championships.

WHAT JUST HAPPENED! 🥇 @GableSteveson grabs the GOLD as time expires. #TokyoOlympics https://t.co/yqMc3wbXsu

Steveson defeated Geno Petriashvili with a move in the final second to secure a 10-8 victory. The American's final point was added after an unsuccessful challenge made by the Georgian silver medalist. 

Steveson built an early lead in the first of two three-minute periods, but he conceded points to Petriashvili throughout the second period. 

The American had not conceded a point in his first three bouts of the competition. He won those matches by a combined score of 23-0. 

After the final result was confirmed, Steveson broke out one of his trademark backflips to celebrate the victory. 

Steveson captured one of 31 gold medals for the United States. Three of those golds have come from wrestling. David Taylor and Tamyra Mensah-Stock took first place in their respective events.
