'Scandal': Allyson Felix attempts to 'run' the show

Terrible pun! This is really cute: Allyson Felix, who won the women’s 200m dash at the London Olympics (sniff!), mentioned in interviews that during her down time before racing, she’d been marathoning — a.k.a. watching the entire first season of ABC’s Scandal! Creator Shonda Rhimes immediately invited the smiley sprinter to visit the set. Looks like she fits in perfectly. Vote Felix/Jeter in 2012!

Felix plans to become an elementary school teacher like her mom — but maybe she could guest star on this show first? Every good educator could use a scandal or two under her belt. Click through to see two more shots of her visit.

Allyson Felix manages the crisis of having nowhere to run to.

Group love! How is no one lunging for those gold medals right now?

Columbus Short (who plays Harrison White) couldn’t resist.

Access Hollywood has video of Felix and Scandal star Kerry Washington gushing over how great the other person is. Aggghh, I can’t stop grinning! Good stuff.

Do you want Rhimes to write Felix into the plot as a potential love interest or power-hungry litigator, or should the golden girl just sprint by the conference room from time to time?

Season 2 premieres Thursday, September 27 on ABC.
