    Can’t wait. The Olympics can’t get here fast enough. Glad we don’t have to wait till August like previous years.

    How disgraceful Mountain and Pacific Time Zones won’t see this live. Should be shown coast-to-coast, unfortunately those stations will be caught up into local news and NBC Nightly News at the time. Still, ALL live sports should air live in all time zones, regardless of time.

    WOAH! This is huge, I’m loving the new direction of NBC Sports so much.

    The Olympics need to hurry up and come.

    This run-off won’t happen.

    This afternoon (July 2nd), it was reported that Tarmoh has decided not to participate in a run-off, which will allow Felix to make the Olympic team.

    Too bad she conceded. I was looking forward to the run-off.

  • Networkman

    I can understand why Tarmoh was not mentally invested in this run-off. Felix should of took the high road and conceded. I am not really fond of Felix. Considering she is the training partner of Tarmoh and qualified for the 200m, she should of been more than happy to give Tarmoh a chance at an individual medal. But I think she wanted so badly to be able to medal in two separate individual events like Jeter and Richards-Ross. So now Felix should be happy that she can go for 4 gold medals while Tarmoh can just prepare herself for the relay. Felix is America’s darling of Track and Field. I feel Tarmoh was just tired of the whole ordeal. I’m rooting for Jeter to win both the 100m & 200m.
