EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The tie for third place in the women's 100 meters at the U.S. track trials will be decided by a runoff Monday.
Officials confirmed Sunday that Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh would race to determine the third member of the Olympic team for London.
Felix and Tarmoh finished in a dead heat for third place in the women's 100 more than a week ago. Track officials had no policy in place to decide things but devised a tiebreaker that included the options of a runoff or a coin flip.
The coach of both athletes said they wanted to wait to make a decision until after Saturday night's 200 meters so they could focus on that race.
