Here's a novel way to break a tie to determine which woman should be the third representative of the U.S. in the 100-meter dash at the Summer Olympics in London: Mud wrestle.
At least that's what Justin Gatlin says.
At the U.S. Olympic trials over the weekend, Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh finished in a tie for third in the women's 100 meters. Unfortunately, only the top three make it to the Olympics, meaning one of the two won't be competing in London. But which one? While Felix and Tarmoh get together with their advisors to determine whether they should compete in a runoff or flip a coin, Gatlin, who won the men's 100 meters and will be going to London, appeared on ESPN's SportsCenter and floated his idea.
