2012 US Olympic Trials: Jeneba Tarmoh Surrenders 100M Spot To Allyson Felix, Runoff Canceled

What would have been high drama television is presumably no longer going to happen as Jeneba Tarmoh has surrendered her spot on the women's 100m team to Allyson Felix instead of going through with the scheduled runoff that would have been broadcasted on NBC at 8 p.m. ET, according to USA Today's David Leon Moore and ESPN's Josina Anderson.

"When I spoke to Jeneba (on Sunday), I got from her that she was uncomfortable with the idea of a runoff and a coin toss and that she was no longer at peace with the idea," Tarmoh's agent, Kimberly Holland, told ESPN's Josina Anderson. "After she spoke with me, Jeneba told Allyson (Felix) how she felt. My understanding of how Jeneba left that conversation was that she wished her good luck and was conceding the 100-meter spot to Allyson."

Also according to ESPN, USATF officials have advised Tarmoh to sleep on the decision.

Tarmoh and Felix tied for third place in the 100m finals resulting in the USATF trying to figure out a way to break the tie.

Olympic Swimming Trials 2012 Results: Michael Phelps Edges Ryan Lochte

Here are some of the results for Day 3 of the 2012 Olympic Trials.

Michael Phelps slightly edged out Ryan Lochte in the 200 meter freestyle. It was a close race all the way, but Phelps managed to dig it out. Lochte won the 400 meter individual medley the first day, so the two are now split ins swimming finals where they've been paired against each other. They can settle it by whomever wins the 200 IM, where both are heavily favored to win.

Missy Franklin and Rachel Bootsma captured the two spots for the 100 meter backstroke, edging out legend Natalie Coughlin. Coughlin will now have to hope she can qualify on the 100 freestyle if she hopes to get back to London.

Finally, Matt Grevers finished first in the 100 meter backstroke, the second fastest ever in the race's history, with Nick Thoman going second.

Olympic Swimming Trials Results: Ryan Lochte Edges Michael Phelps In Semifinals

The amount of talent amassed on the Team USA swimming squad is pretty phenomenal right now, and we had a great day of trails on Tuesday in Omaha. The biggest race of the day came at the 200-meter freestyle semifinals, which featured Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

Olympic Trials 2012: Elizabeth Beisel Wins 400 Meter Individual Medley

Elizabeth Beisel, a swimmer for the Florida Gators, stomped the competition in the Women's 400 Meter Individual Medley, winning by over three seconds with a final time of 4:31.74. However, the bigger story of the race might be the second place finisher Caitlin Leverenz, who will be heading to her first Olympics of her career.

Leverenz, a swimmer for the University of California Golden Bears, just narrowly missed out on making the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team, and her final time of 4:34.48 was good enough for second place and a passport stamp to London, England.

Beisel was the youngest member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Swim team as a 15-year-old. She finished second in both the 400-meter individual medley and the 200-meter backstroke.

Ryan Lochte Beats Michael Phelps In Qualifiers, Both Advance to Olympics

Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps are two of the world's top swimmers, and up until tonight they have never faced off against each other. Phelps stepped away from the 400 IM after the Bejing Olympics, and Lochte stepped in as the reigning champion in the race in 2009 and 2011. Lochte was favored to win the qualifier, in which the top two finishers would advance to the London Olympics.

Tyler Clarey led halfway through the race until Lochte and Phelps overtook him during the breaststroke. Lochte was a full-body length ahead of Phelps going into the final freestroke and coasted to victory on the final lap.

It was the fastest time ever for Lochte in the medley as he finished with a final time of 4:07:06. Phelps came in second place with a time of 4:07:89. The two swimmers will go on to compete in the later this summer. Phelps also became the first male swimmer to make four Olympic teams.
