“I Jeneba Tarmoh have decided to decline my 3rd place position in the 100m dash to Allyson Felix,” her e-mail said. “I understand that with this decision, I am no longer running the 100m dash in the Olympic Games and will be an alternate for the event. As an alternate, I understand that I will be asked to run if another 100m runner decides not to for personal reasons, and/or on the 4x100m relay.”
Tarmoh thought the situation had been handled unfairly, one of her college coaches said.
“She just feels like she’s being wronged here,” said the coach, Vince Anderson, who worked with Tarmoh when she ran at Texas A&M.
