Justin Gatlin Thinks Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh Should Mud Wrestle For Olympic Spot

Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh tied for 3rd in the 100 Meters at US Olympic Trials.

Since then people have been trying to figure out how to break the tie. A coin toss and race off have been suggested. Justin Gatlin the winner of the Mens 100 Meters at the US Olympic Trials has a better idea.

100m finals, Justin Gatlin, came up with an alternative solution: Wrestling.

He was joking around, but this probably wasn’t the best idea. From Jim Caple:

“I’m voting for Jell-O wrestling match,” Gatlin said. “Red Jell-O. That’s my favorite.”

The Jell-O quote wasn’t the end of it, either. Instead, he switched it up and decided that mud wrestling would be a better idea. And he did so on SportsCenter…

Gatlin is lucky that probably 90% of the country has no idea who he was or this would be a much bigger story. Yes, he was joking, but it was a bad joke even if harmless.

Gatlin should stick to juicing errrrrrrrr running and leave the jokes to the comedians.
