Allyson Felix poses for SI photographer Peter Read Miller, who said of the shoot: “We built a 30-foot ramp, painted a sunset sky background and had some foam pads for Felix to crash into as the future Olympian did a series of runs and jumps in advance of her first major story in SI.” The photo was shot with a Canon EOS-1Ds, EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM zoom, shot at 1/250 f/6.3.
