2012 U.S. Olympic Team Track & Field Trials: Dead Heat Declared Between Jeneba Tarmoh And Allyson Felix

USA Track & Field is working to determine a manner to decide the third-place finisher from Saturday's women's 100m dash at the U.S. Track & Field Trials in Eugene, Ore., with a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team on the line. Jeneba Tarmoh and Allyson Felix both finished tied for third at 11.07, with Tarmoh finishing with a .001 advantage of 11.068 to 11.069. USATF officials have declared the third-place finish a dead heat, however, and are determining how to select a winner, as there is no official tiebreaker policy:

Of the two competitors, Felix is more well known, having won gold in the 4x400m relay and silver in the 200m at the 2008 Olympics, as well as silver in the 200m in 2004. However a winner is determined, the third-place finisher will join Carmelita Jeter and Tianna Madison on the U.S. team for London.
