Who is Devon Allen's girlfriend Morgan Mitchell? US athlete dating Aussie Olympian for 3 years
US athlete Devon Allen has become the talk of the town as he showed off his smooth dance moves after winning the semifinal heats in 110 m Hurdles. The former football player from Oregon has won the internet with his unusual celebration and is now being hailed as a top medal contender. A video of the sprinter break dancing on the track was shared by Tokyo Olympics' official Twitter account, with the caption "Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (We got a brand new dance)."
Little known to many, the 26-year-old athlete is in a long-term relationship with Morgan Mitchell, an Australian athlete who is also participating in the Tokyo Olympics. The couple has been together for nearly three years now. When not training, they are often spotted vacationing together or enjoying a movie date. Allen appears to have caught the world's attention with his latest dance moves, but Mitchell is yet to share her thoughts on her boyfriend's dance routine. Other Olympians whose girlfriends made headlines this week include hurdler Rai Benjamin, Karsten Warholm and Robert Finke.
Who is Devon Allen's girlfriend Morgan Mitchell?
Morgan Mitchell is a 26-year-old Australian sprinter who participates in 400m and 800m races. According to News Relationship, Mitchell is also a trainer at F45 — a Los Angeles-based fitness franchise with over 1,750 fitness studios across 45 countries. The Australian athlete, who originally hails from Carlton, Melbourne, works as a fitness coach at the Ascot Vale branch of F45.
At the Tokyo Olympics, Mitchell participated in the Heat for Women's 800 meters on July 30, 2021, but unfortunately failed to qualify for the finals. She is believed to be staying with Allen at present, while he continues his Olympic journey. During a recent interview with Magzter, Mitchell reportedly had a brief tussle with her boyfriend who apparently ate "all the Oreos".
Allen and Mitchell started seeing each other sometime around late 2017, after they were introduced by mutual friend Annie LeBlanc, a retired Canadian athlete. LeBlanc knew Allen from her days at the University of Oregon while she might have met Mitchell through sports events. It did not take long for the two sports icons to fall in love and enter a committed relationship.
The happy couple regularly shares photos with each other on social media, setting major relationship goals for their followers. Allen had shared his first photo with Mitchell in 2018, captioning the post with "SORTED". On October 3, 2020, he wished his girlfriend on her birthday with a series of photos, writing, "Happy birthday to my beautiful Aussie! I hope you have a great one filled with doughnuts and burritos.”
Devon Allen will be next seen at the finals of Men's 110m Hurdles on August 5, 2021.
