EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Bobby Kersee is in favor of a runoff to break a 100-meter tie between his two sprinters, Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh.
Just not now.
Maybe down the road, after the Olympic trials. Or perhaps even a week from now, on a track somewhere to be determined.
To decide anything right now, Kersee told The Associated Press, isn't fair to Felix and Tarmoh, especially because they are both running the 200 later this week.
Felix and Tarmoh finished in a dead heat for the last U.S. spot to the London Games, each bursting across in 11.068 seconds Saturday.
With no protocol in place, there's no guessing how USA Track and Field plans to break the tie. The organization is still determining a procedure to settle the situation.
