About Jeneba
Tarmoh was involved in the much publicized dead heat in the women's 100m at the 2012 Olympic Trials. She and training partner Allyson Felix were clocked in identical times and the race was ruled a dead heat. She went on to win Olympic gold as part of the 4x100 team in London. Tarmoh first turned heads at the 2011 USA Championships where she took third in the 200m to punch her ticket to her first senior World Championships. Tarmoh was not far behind second-placer Carmelita Jeter, with only five-hundredths of a second separating the pair. After her success at the U.S. Championships, Tarmoh decided to forgo her senior year of eligibility at Texas A&M and sign a professional contract. Tarmoh helped Texas A&M win the team title with her runner-up finish in the 200m and her contributions to both relay squads. Tarmoh won gold at the 2010 NACAC U-23 Championships in the 100m after first tasting success at the 2008 World Junior Championships. Tarmoh made her first international team at 16-years-old.
