We use overtime and extra innings in most sports if there is a tie at the end of regulation. We use the coin toss to determine who kicks and who receives at the beginning of overtime in the NFL. We use the jump ball to decide who will get the ball when there is a “tie” for the ball in the NBA. In swimming, ties are settled with swim-offs between the two opponents. There are rules in place for instances like these and they are in place JUST IN CASE. Well….. USATF has found itself in a doosy after this weekend’s Olympic Trials. Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh finished in a dead heat for third place and the final U.S. spot for the women's 100-meter Olympic team. Both women leaned across the finish line in 11.068 seconds.
