In 2018 it was revealed that Felix was pregnant for most of the year, and on November 28, 2018 she gave birth to her daughter by emergency C-section.
Felix accused Nike of being unsupportive when she gave birth to her daughter in November 2018. Nike wanted her back into competition as soon as possible, offering her a 70 percent pay cut. Felix asked for guarantees that if her performance dropped due to just giving birth she wouldn’t be punished, but Nike declined. In May 2019, she penned an op-ed for The New York Times regarding her poor maternity treatment from Nike, represented entirely by men. Alysia Montaño and Kara Goucher have echoed those complaints. Her seven-year sponsorship with Nike ended in December 2017 and was not extended.
Felix concluded her Olympic career at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics after winning gold in the 4 x 400 final, alongside an all-star team including Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad, and Athing Mu. This eleventh Olympic medal broke Felix’s tie with Carl Lewis and officially established her as the most decorated American track and field athlete in Olympic history.
