Allyson Felix plays word association at espnW: Women + Sports Summit

Six-time Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix explains how disappointed she was not to win gold in the 400m race because of Bahamas Shaunae Miller's dive.

Fun fact of the day: Nine-time Olympic medalist Allyson Felix's favorite ice cream is Oatmeal Cookie Chunk.

In a conversation with ESPN's Sage Steele at the espnW: Women + Sports Summit, the Team USA track star discussed her Olympic journey and experience at this summer's Rio Games. Steele ended the session with a game of word association, asking Felix questions ranging from her favorite ice cream to her favorite hobby.

Here are some of Felix's answers:

Sage Steele: Favorite Ice Cream?

Allyson Felix: Ben & Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Chunk. I have a problem with snacking, I need to do better. Will (brother and agent) likes to call me a fat kid. He outed me in an article saying I have powdered donuts next to my bed.

SS: Favorite TV show?

AF: Fresh Prince [of Bel Air]
