Tarmoh only reluctantly agreed to a runoff in the first place. She felt that she won her spot fair and square on the track eight days ago.
"In my heart of hearts, I just feel like I earned the third spot," she said Sunday. "I almost feel like I was kind of robbed."
Tarmoh leaned across the finish line and looked up to see her name on the scoreboard in the third spot behind Jeter and runner-up Madison. The 22-year-old even took a celebratory lap around the track, waving an American flag. She received a medal and conducted a news conference.
Then she found out about the dead heat.
Fight on, Felix.
Do I get to say Texas A&M is afraid of USC now?
"Felix graduated High School in 2003, making headlines by forgoing college eligibility to sign a professional contract with Adidas."
It's quite humorous that you claim her when she went pro out of high school....
It's quite humorous that you did not read the very next two sentences.
" Adidas paid her an undisclosed sum and picked up her college tuition at the University of Southern California. She has since graduated with a degree in elementary education."
Good. I don't want quitters on the US team...
