Olympic 200-meter champion Allyson Felix figures she has one more Summer Games in her.

In an interview Friday, the 26-year-old Felix said she thinks she can "be in the mix" for the 100 and has "potential" for the 400, too.

After finishing runner-up in the 200 at the past two Olympics, Felix "definitely got discouraged, frustrated," and wondered whether she would ever get an individual gold. But she did just that on Wednesday and now is walking around with that prize in her purse.

A smiling Felix explained: "No one wants to just see me anymore. They want to see the medal."
