Allyson Felix, the cover girl of Athletics 2011, focused on running more one lap races in 2010 and in winning the overall titles in the 200m and the 400m, she became the first person ever to secure top prize in two IAAF Diamond League events in the same year. She continued her dominance by winning 21 races out of 22 starts, losing only to Veronica Campbell-Brown in New York in June.
As usual the ATFS annual contains unrivalled coverage of the events of the previous year as well as chronicling the early events of 2011.
