EUGENE, OR. -- Jeneba Tarmoh doesn't want to be viewed as a quitter.
A sense of fairness and not fear kept her from taking the starting line to break a third-place tie in the 100 meters with training partner Allyson Felix on Monday.
Tarmoh didn't think it was right she had to earn that spot again after originally being awarded third place in the June 23 race.
Her heart wasn't into a runoff and she notified USA Track and Field she was stepping aside, conceding the final Olympic spot in the 100 to Felix.
A day later, Tarmoh's still at peace with her choice, even if some are second-guessing her decision.
