2012 U.S. Olympic Team Track & Field Trials: Carmelita Jeter Wins 100m Dash, Allyson Felix Finishes In 'Dead Heat'

Carmelita Jeter took first place in the women's 100m dash at the 2012 U.S. Track and Field Trials in Eugene, Ore. on Saturday night. Jeter's 10.92 was .04 of a second better than second-place finisher Tianna Madison, who finished at 10.96. Jeneba Tarmoh at finished at 11.07, tied with Allyson Felix. Felix won gold at the 2008 Olympics in the 4x400m relay, and silver in the 200m.

The women's 100m dash completed a rain-delayed day of trials in Eugene, with the unquestionable highlight coming when Ashton Eaton broke the 1500m men's decathlon world record. The trials will start again on Sunday at 1 p.m. PT with the women's pole vault.

The 2012 U.S. Women's 100m Dash Team:

Carmelita Jeter

Tianna Madison

Jeneba Tarmoh

Edit: The ruling on the third-place finish is now officially a "dead heat." Therefore, Jeneba Tarmoh and Allyson Felix finished, technically, tied. It is yet unknown which will be taking the spot on the 100m team heading to London. A previous version of this article listed Tarmoh ahead of Felix by .001 seconds.
