Not only did Felix break a record that was held for 18 year, the record she broke was set by a man. GOOD FOR HER – WOMEN POWER!!!
Tokyo 2020 Olympic Profile. In 2019, Allyson Felix cut ties with longtime sponsor Nike because she didn’t believe the company supported her as a mother. She said that Nike offered her a 70% pay cut during contract negotiations after childbirth.
Why not full pay; can’t they afford it?? NIKE Direct revenues were $11.8 billion, up 16 percent on a currency-neutral basis, driven by a 35 percent increase in digital commerce sales, 6 percent growth in comparable store sales as well as the addition of new stores. Sales to wholesale customers increased 10%.
Now is the time for Felix to flex her muscles and tell Nike to FO if they start copping a plea to get her back. ORRRR she should ask for 10 times what they paid her last go-round. They partially dropped her like a hot potato after she became pregnant. I always though there were laws against that kind of discrimination.
She should tell them to kiss your keister for Easter. As the old cliche goes; it’s not what you did for me yesterday, it is what can you do for me today!!!!
In my opinion Nike is a second or third rate operation anyway. They have a long history of using and abusing people and even using sweatshops across the pond making a tennis shoe for $2.50 selling them for ungodly price to some fools.
Nike does not have a great track record on respecting human rights in its factories/sweat shops, including reports of wage theft, violence and discrimination against women, extremely low pay, unsafe working conditions and retaliation against union organizers.

They should pay Megan Markle to hand deliver them. I understand the lady is looking for something to keep herself busy.
You read that right: 100 grand for a pair of sneakers. AYSM!!!
Honestly; I don’t blame Nike for setting their prices; I blame the idiots that buy the shoes.
Congrats to Felix for here new world record.
