Stellingwertff falls short in Olympic semi final qualifier
August 9, 2012

Olympic Games - Hilary Stellingwerff needed a 5th place finish to qualify for the finals in the Women's 1500 metre race, Stellingwerff placed 6th.  I was so boxed in. I was trying to stay patient and not have to go around four people, because that would lose energy, Stellingwertff was quoted as saying. I found an opening in the last stretch and I passed three girls, but it wasnt fast enough.

The top 5 racers in heat 1 & 2 qualified to compete in the final and the next two fastest runners from both heats would qualify.  With a time of 4:05.57 Stellingwerff waited on the sidelines for the second heat to run, but unfortunately heat two pace was too quick eliminating her from the final.
