A day after sprinting into history, Los Angeles’ Allyson Felix will be back on the track to chase down an 11th Olympic medal.

The bronze medal winner in the 400m will be part of the 4x400m relay team. Both the U.S. men’s and women’s teams will compete in the final early Saturday morning.

In other action on Day 15, the U.S. men’s hoops team plays for gold, as will golfer Nelly Korda and the U.S. baseball team.

Allyson Felix and U.S. Relay Teams Go for More Medals

In what will be the last full day on the track, Team USA will look to reach the podium in both the men’s and women’s 4x400m relays.

The relay will mark the final race in Allyson Felix’s illustrious Olympic career. Team USA will try to send her off with an historic 11th Olympic medal. Paavo Nurmi of Finland holds the all-time mark with 12 medals from 1920-28.

Felix captured her 10th Olympic medal by winning bonze on Day 14 in the 400m final. The gritty performance — Felix held on in the final stretch for third — made her the most decorated woman in U.S. Olympic track and field history.

“A lot of times, I have tied my own work to what happens in these championships,” she said. “And I didn’t want to do that this time. I’ve been through too much. I always run for gold. But I just wanted to have joy no matter what happened tonight.”

A medal in the 4x400m would make her the most decorated American in track and field with one more medal that the great Carl Lewis.

Team USA is the reigning champion in the event, and will be gold medal favorites after their blistering qualifying time of 3:20:86. Kendall Ellis, Lyann Irby, Wadeline Jonathas, and Kaylin Whitney made up the qualifying quartet, while Felix is expected to run the final on Saturday morning at 5:30 a.m. PT. 

Other final events from track and field on Saturday include: Women’s high jump, the women’s 10,000 meter race, men’s javelin throw, and the men’s 1500 meter race.  

Coverage begins at 3 a.m. PT. Watch on Peacock or stream live.
