EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says sprinter Jeneba Tarmoh is reconsidering her decision to take part in a runoff against training partner Allyson Felix on Monday night.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because no announcement was made.
The sprinters agreed to settle a third-place tie in the 100 meters at Olympic trials with a runoff. The winner earns the last spot in the event to the London Games.
The race is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. EDT and would be a boon for track, since it will be shown on NBC in conjunction with the network's coverage of the swimming trials.
Tarmoh only reluctantly agreed to the runoff in the first place.
