2012 U.S. Olympic Team Track & Field Trials: Wallace Spearmon Wins, Maurice Mitchell And Isiah Young Qualify

Wallace Spearmon is going to have a chance at redemption in the 200 meters at the 2012 Olympics. He finished third to seemingly win the bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics, but was disqualified for stepping out of his lane. He won the 200 meters at the Olympic trials on Sunday in 19.82, and will be one of the medal favorites in London.

He'll be joined on the team by Maurice Mitchell and Isiah Young, who barely edged their competitors in an extremely close race. There was only one-hundredth of a second between Young and fourth place finisher Calesio Newman, who misses out on the Olympics in heartbreaking fashion. Spearman impressively came close to a meet record into a 2.3 mile per hour headwind, but came up just short of Michael Johnson's mark.
