The curse of going professional reared its ugly head as Allyson Felix did not get out of the Quarter Final Rounds of the 200. Felix, who signed a contract with Adidas, barely made it out of the first round in the morning. She was well beaten in the afternoon race and goes home wealthy but unhappy. Allyson is not ready for prime time yet. Maturity is a factor that is not talked about very often. Sure she will get some money during the next few years. But I think she should have taken a year or two to develop in college, eventhough she would be running against the Lady LongHorns.
