News staff and wire services

Eugene, Ore – . — There will be no Olympic double for Allyson Felix.

Beaten to the line by 0.01 seconds for third place by a diving Jenna Prandini, Felix finished fourth in the 200 meters at Olympic trials and will not be able to defend her title.

Also off the table — the 200-400 Olympic double. Felix qualified last weekend for the 400, but had been dealing with a sore right ankle.

Tori Bowie and Deajah Stevens finished first and second.

“Honestly disappointed, you know?” Felix said.
