ROME (AP) — Allyson Felix had “no regrets” after a seventh-place finish in the 200 meters of what was likely her final Diamond League meet Thursday.

It made no difference to Felix — the most decorated female track athlete in Olympic history who plans to retire later this season — that she wasn’t really competitive amid an elite field at the Golden Gala Pietro Mennea.

Shericka Jackson led a Jamaican 1-2 ahead of teammate and two-time reigning Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah in a meet-record 21.91 seconds.
