Al Roker may no longer be trending but recently he became a big Internet sensation. After more detail came out from the Ryan Lochte story, Roker wasn’t having it. While Lochte was cleaning up his story Allyson Felix was cleaning-up on the track. She schooled Lochte on what it takes to have amazing grave.

Leading up to and at the Olympics Felix had a series of gut-wrenching setbacks. In a recent tweet she wrote “When you feel broken. When you have nothing left to give. Remain faithful. Keep fighting. Joy comes in the morning.” She gave us 3 options for flashing A+ swagger in a performance crunch.

Felix missed-out on qualifying for the 200 meters at the US trials. She then lost the 400 meters Olympic final by a hair. Both times she was beaten at the line by a falling runner. She has a template for handling adversity. It’s in forgetting those things which are behind and pressing towards the mark of a champion.

Even when they dropped the stick in the 4X100 heats, Felix called on some ‘smile diplomacy.’ This pushed her teammates to finish the race before issuing a protest. If they hadn’t completed the initial race, they wouldn’t have had another chance. In the finals, the squad blew away the rest of the field.

When asked by the Today Show about how she moved from feeling devastated, Felix showed true character. “You’re going to have obstacles. There’s going to be adversity. Let your spirit shine through.” She displayed humility in ways that helped her turn a surprise setback into a history-making comeback.
