Allyson Felix addresses Roe being overturned at U.S. championships

Wade, news that broke Friday morning before Felix ran in the semifinals. Felix, who has spent much of her career vocally advocating for women, their opportunities and equality, said of Roe that she “knew what was going on, obviously. I felt it all around me.”
