In a letter shared by six-time Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix, Nike said it would not apply performance-related reduction for 18 months if an athlete becomes pregnant. The letter comes after Nike wanted to pay the gold medallist 70% less after she became a mother, where her daughter Camryn was born prematurely in November. Felix returned to action after 13 months in July at the US National Championships.
