Santa Clarita’s Allyson Felix is going to the Summer Olympics in London. But it has yet to be determined in what capacity.
Felix was in a dead heat for third place in the 100 meters at the USA Track and Field Olympic Trials over the weekend. A photo finish between her and Jeneba Tarmoh showed both runners crossed the line at the exact same time, 11.068 seconds.
Both runners will compete in the Olympics in the 4×100 relay. But only one will race in the 100 meters at the Olympics.
Carmelita Jeter, the world champion in the 100 meters, won the US Olympic Trials race in 10.92 seconds.
