If you didn’t already know Allyson Felix as a 9-time Olympian, you may have gotten to know her as last year’s host of American Ninja Warrior Weekly.

After giving birth to her daughter Camryn less than 12 months ago, the sprinter is making headlines again, this time for breaking Usain Bolt’s record for the most gold medals at the track and field World Championships. She won her 12th gold medal at the World Championships on Sunday for her role on the mixed-gender 4x400m relay team.

Congratulations, Allyson! We can’t wait to see what you do next summer in the 2020 Olympics!
