EUGENE, Ore. — The way this is most likely going to end up is that Jeneba Tarmoh and Allyson Felix are going to have a run-off, probably Sunday, the day after the women’s 200 meters, to decide who gets the third and final spot in the 100 meters on the U.S. team that goes to London.
It’s not a done deal, of course. A jillion things could happen between now and then. But that’s the most probable. After all, it was improbable enough to see a dead heat that ended with both runners timed in 11.068 seconds, and more improbable yet that USA Track & Field didn’t have a process in place to resolve this kind of thing.
