Allyson Felix, Jeneba Tarmoh To Compete In 100m Runoff On Monday

The long-awaited runoff between Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh in the 100-meter dash will take place in Eugene, Ore., Monday night at 8 p.m. ET, as first reported by Sports Illustrated contributor George Schroeder. Felix and Tarmoh finished in a dead heat for third place in the first running of the 100m finals. Only three competitors qualify for the Olympic team in each event. Felix and Tarmoh had the option of resorting to a coin flip to determine the winner, but instead they elected to have a runoff.

NBC has been televising the Olympic swimming trials at night, but Tim Layden reported that the network will cut to the sprint, as this has been one of the more closely followed stories in Olympic qualifying all week.

Carmelita Jeter and Tianna Madison finished first and second, respectively, in the 100m dash, and have already punched their tickets to London.
