2012 U.S. Olympic Trials: Jeneba Tarmoh, Allyson Felix To Compete In Runoff

As the first few days of the 2012 Olympic Track and Field Trials in Eugene, Ore. for the most part have concluded, there is still one area that needs to be decided. The 100 meter Women's event needs to have a tie-breaker for the final spot on the team, as Jeneba Tarmoh and Allyson Felix both finished tied for third at 11.07 earlier in the day. There is no official tie-break policy however, so the USATF has decided on a runoff... or a coin flip.

Tarmoh finished with a .001 advantage of 11.068 to 11.069, but third place was ruled a dead heat. The winner of the runoff will join Carmelita Jeter and Tianna Madison on the U.S. team for London.
