Medal record holder Allyson Felix from the USA has been nominated for a World Athletics Championship for the tenth time and is getting the chance to say goodbye in her home country.

The most successful track and field athlete in World Championship history with 18 medals was named to the squad for the 4×400 meter mixed race by Team USA on Tuesday (local time). Her sixth place in the 400 meters at the US Championships in June was not enough for a coveted spot in the individual race. The 36-year-old, who won seven gold medals at the Olympic Games and twelve at the World Championships, has announced that she will retire at the end of this season.

A total of 151 athletes were named to the US squad for the World Championships in Eugene, including nine reigning world champions. The first World Championships in Athletics in the United States will take place in Oregon from July 15th to 25th.

Sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, who had not made it into the finals at the national championships over 100 or 200 meters, did not get a place in the squad. Just a year ago, the athlete, known for her long colorful hair and fingernails, had sprinted the best time in the elimination for the Olympic Games, but was then not allowed to compete in Tokyo because of a doping violation caused by marijuana use.
