We asked you, and you voted. By popular demand, this week's Throwback Thursday takes us back to Doha 2015, where Allyson Felix ran a brilliant sub-22 to set a new Diamond League record.

Already with three Diamond Trophies to her name, Allyson Felix went into 2015 IAAF Diamond League season looking to defend her 200m title from the previous year. 

She got off to a flying start in Doha, putting in a sublime performance and laying down the gauntlet at the very first opportunity. 

Pulling away from Murielle Ahouré, Felix sailed ahead of the field on the home straight, coming in at 21.98. It was the best time in the world since Felix herrself had run 21.88 in the 2012 Olympic Final, and it was one of three Diamond League records to be set on a stunning evening of athletics.
