Brief profile of Allyson Felix

The LA Times has a brief article posted about USC student and kick-ass sprinter Allyson Felix, who is closing in on her degree. She is the defending world champion in the 200 meter sprint, as well as the winner of a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics, and is training with Bob Kersee over at UCLA (that's dedication, people.)

I somehow doubt that the questions put to Ms. Felix would have covered "Dancing with the Stars" and "American Idol" had she been named Booty, Sanchez, or Mustain, but there was one entertaining exchange:

Q.: Best USC football player?

A.: Reggie Bush of course. I think I could take him in the 200. Maybe. It would be close. Don't tell him I said that.

Don't sell yourself short, Ms. Felix. Reggie's been in at the beignets, etouffe, and boudin blanc over the summer, so he's probably got a little heartburn and a couple extra pounds slowing that first step. Most of his off-season getaways have been more, ah, legal in nature. You could totally catch him.

Just watch out for getting blindsided by that Ciara character... she's slender but she hits like a truck, she's all about the technique.
