Felix Sets American 300 Meter Record At Tyson Invitational

Reigning world outdoor 200m champion Allyson Felix made her season's debut a memorable one in posting an American record at the 2007 Tyson Invitational at the Randal Tyson Indoor Track Center on the campus of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
2004 Olympic 200m silver medalist Allyson Felix set a new American record in the Tyson women's invitational 300 meters in a race that came down to the wire. Felix held the lead from the start in finishing in the new American record time of 36.33 seconds, which betters the previous U.S. standard of 36.67 seconds set three weeks ago by Hampton University freshman Francena McCorory. Felix's performance is also the fifth fastest performance in history.
