He got a Triple Gold Medallist at the 2003 Pan American Junior Championships winning the 110M, 400M hurdles and also the 4X400 relay. Despite her busy schedule, Allyson Felix makes her marriage to Kenneth Ferguson a priority: "I think it's important to really try to schedule time for ourselves.
For me, it's been difficult because a lot of this requires help sometimes, but it's just that we have a great support system and it's great. My parents don't live too far away so they were good at it, our daughter Cammy spends time with them and then we can dedicate time to ourselves and our relationship.
I'm just treasuring that time even just with us. It's not always easy, but I think if you make it a priority, you can make it happen. "
