Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix suffered a torn right hamstring in the 200 meter final at the World Championships when she pulled up about 50 meters into the race.

The race was an anticipated showdown between Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica and Felix.

Fraser-Pryce won the race in 22.17 seconds. Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast won silver in 22.32, and Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare earned bronze with the same time.  Felix is a three-time world champion in the 200.

 “I’m extremely devastated. I was really hoping to go out there and put together a great race," Felix said. "Now I am consulting with doctors to figure out what is going on with my right hamstring. It is a serious injury, but I don’t know exactly to what extent. I wish all of my teammates the best for the rest of the meet.”
