U.S. track and field star Allyson Felix, who won three gold medals at the Summer Olympics in London this year, is currently visiting Tel Aviv, where she took part in the city's Nike Night Run on Tuesday, Israel Hayom reported.

“I’m extremely excited about coming to Israel for the Nike Night Run,” Felix said in a statement before her trip. “I hope I can inspire the runners of Tel Aviv to not only give their best, but to beat their best, just like I did this summer in London.”
