Jeneba Tarmoh, by Mark Winitz, California Track & Running News, note by Larry Eder

Jeneba Tarmoh surely made her presence felt last night in the 100 meter final. While the top two, Carmelita Jeter and Tiana Madison, were dueling, with Jeter winning in 10.92, and Madison taking second in 10.96, Tarmoh and Felix were in an epic struggle. Who would take third.

Well, twenty four hours later, it is still a dead heat as Jeneba Tarmoh, is shown at third in 11.07 and Allyson Felix is also shown in third in 11.07.

While USATF is sorting out how they will determine who goes to London, we thought you might want to know more about this young sprinter from the Golden State. Special thanks to Mark Winitz for his writing and Christine Johnson, editor of California Track & Running News for her suggestion on this piece:
