Moscow: American sprint great Allyson Felix moved to within one victory of the all-time record for world titles on Thursday as she won her 200 metres semi-final at the World Athletics Championships.

The 27-year-old Olympic champion, who presently shares the record of eight titles with retired compatriots Carl Lewis and Michael Johnson, looked in the sort of condition she needs to be in to win her fourth world title in the event.

However, Felix will have taken note of the form of Jamaica's 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who looked to be in better shape than she was last year when finishing a well-beaten second in the Olympic final.
