Lolo Jones agreed to try bobsledding because she needed something to take her mind off the rigors of her Olympic track season.
Carmelita Jeter crossed the finish line pointing the baton at the clock showing a world record of 40.82 seconds Friday night as the United States won the women's Olympic 4x100-meter relay for the first time since 1996.
Allyson Felix waited. And waited. What was just a few seconds seemed an eternity as she looked up from the track at the scoreboard and watched the names appear. Carmelita Jeter. Tianna Madison. Jeneba Tarmoh. Allyson Felix.
Jeneba Tarmoh conceded the final Olympic spot in the 100 meters rather than meet training partner Allyson Felix at the starting line to break a third-place tie.
