|Third time's a charm for Olympic gold|
The CBC (Canada) website writes: "Allyson Felix finally won an individual Olympic gold medal, gliding home with her seemingly effortless stride to take the 200-meters title [in 21.88 seconds] and end [Jamaica's] Veronica Campbell-Brown's stranglehold on the event."
More: "In the biggest final of the night, loaded with gold medallists, Felix was quickest around the curve and, once she had her smooth, elegant stride going, none of the power racers could come close. 'I mean, finally. It's been a long time coming,' Felix said, reflecting on two losses to Veronica Campbell-Brown. 'To twice lose to the same person, it's been tough. But it's all paying off.' Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica added silver to her 100 gold medal and Carmelita Jeter took bronze. Campbell-Brown faded out of contention down the stretch and finished fourth, failing — just like pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva did the night before — to become the first woman in track and field to win gold medals in the same individual event at three consecutive Olympics."
