With both Felix and Tarmoh scheduled to compete in the 200 meters — and each scheduled to run a total of six races at these trials — neither was willing to discuss the matter until the conclusion of the Saturday’s 200-meter race. Neither runner expressed a preference to reporters Saturday night in how to break the tie.
Felix earned her spot on the Olympic team with the 200-meter win, but Tarmoh’s London hopes hinge on either qualifying in the 100 or being selected for a relay team.
Notes: Wallace Spearmon will return to the Olympics after decisively winning the men’s 200 meters Sunday in 19.82 seconds, the world’s fastest time this year. He was followed by Maurice Mitchell (20.14) and Isiah Young (20.16). Also Sunday, at the Jamaican track and field trials, Yohan Blake won his country’s 200 title with a time of 19.80, again topping Usain Bolt (19.83). . . .

Michael Tinsley won the men’s 400 hurdles with a time of 48.33, followed by Angelo Taylor (48.57) and Kerron Clement (48.89). . . .
After failing to qualify four years ago, Lashinda Demus, the American record-holder in the women’s 400-meter hurdles, had no problems winning Sunday with her time of 53.98 seconds. Georganne Moline (54.33) was second and T-Erea Brown (54.81) third. . . .
Brittney Reese, the four-time world champion long jumper, is headed to her second Olympics, topping the field Sunday with her final jump of the day, which measured 23 feet 5 ½ inches. Chelsea Hayes (23-3 ½) and Janay DeLoach (23-2 ¾) also made the Olympic team. . . .
