2012 U.S. Track & Field Trials: Allyson Felix, Jeneba Tarmoh Win Their 200m Heats On Day 7

Day 7 at the 2012 U.S. Olympics Team Trials in Track and Field, in addition to the men's and women's 5,000m (full results here), had a trio of finals decided on Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Men's pole vault got the day started, and it was Brad Walker leaping past his competition with a successful attempt on 5.67m. Joining him on Team USA will be Jeremy Scott (5.60m) and Derek Miles (5.60m).

Lance Brooks won the men's discus throw later in the day and did so in dramatic fashion. Needing to reach 65m in his final throw to achieve the "A" standard, Brooks threw 65.15m and secured a spot on Team USA. Joining him in London will be Jarred Rome and Jason Young.

Finally, in the men's 3000m steeplechase, Evan Jager won the finals in 8:17.40. He's going to London along with Donald Cabral and Kyle Alcorn.

Elsewhere on Day 7 at the Track and Field Trials, Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh -- the two still stuck in a tie from the 100m finals -- won their respective preliminary heats in the women's 200m. They'll be joined in Friday's semi-finals by Sanya Richards-Ross, Carmelita Ross and the fastest qualifier, Tianna Madison.

The decision on how to break the 100m tie between Felix and Tarmoh -- whether it be a coin toss or runoff -- will not come until after Saturday night's 200m finals.
