(Reuters) - Olympic champion Allyson Felix failed to make the U.S. team in the 200 meters at the American trials on Sunday, ending her dream for a rare 200-400 meters double at Rio Olympics.

The 30-year-old had earlier won the 400 meters at the trials but finished a non-advancing fourth in the 200 meters by one-hundreth of a second.
