Allyson Felix Wins Women's 200m At Olympic Trials, Carmelita Jeter Is Second

Allyson Felix dominated a loaded field to win the women's 200 meters finals at Hayward Field in the 2012 U.S. Track and Field Trials Saturday night. Carmelita Jeter, the 100m finals winner, was second, and Sanya Richards-Ross, the 400m winner, was third. The trio are all headed to London and all three will be among the favorites for gold in the Olympics.

Jeneba Tarmoh was fifth, finishing in 22.35 seconds. Tarmoh and Felix finished in a dead heat in the 100m earlier in the week; an announcement on how to resolved the tie -- a coin flip or a runoff -- is expected to come Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

Felix won the 200m race in 21.69, which not only is a personal best, but it's also the third-fastest time ever run by an American. She was so dominant that first place was all but a sure thing by the 150-meter mark.
