Decorated champion Allyson Felix won her 30th major international medal at the 2022 track and field world championships Friday. Google honored the legendary athlete in a special way to celebrate her final race.

Searching "Allyson Felix" on Google over the weekend presented an animation of the Olympic runner jogging across the screen, followed by the words: "Olympian, Mother, Advocate."

A second animation appears with Felix holding her toddler daughter, Cammy, while standing atop a podium. The words "Congrats on 20 Unstoppable Years" display on the screen.

Felix, 36, ran her last professional event Friday at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon. Running the second leg of the mixed 4x400 relay, the champion won her 19th world championship medal — a bronze.

Felix has long been a standout in the 200-meter and 400-meter races. She did not qualify for worlds in her individual events and officially retired competitively from the sport after her event Friday.

Her first Olympic medal came as an 18-year-old in the 200-meter race at the 2004 Athens Games. She won bronze in the 400-meter race and gold in the 4x400 relay as a 35-year-old in Tokyo last summer.

Felix helped shape the sport throughout her career and is routinely an advocate for women.
