Steeplechase athlete fails to make final cut

India’s Sudha Singh finished 13th in Heat One of the women’s 3,000-metre steeplechase on Saturday, thus ending her participation in the London Olympics. 

The Indian runner’s time of 9:48.86 was well behind Gesa Felicitas Krause of Germany, who won the opening heat in 9:24.91.

Sudha, who won gold at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, broke her own 3,000m steeplechase national record with a timing of 9:47.70.

It was another disappointing news from track and field events for India, and the only silver lining yet has been Krishna Poonia’s qualification into the finals of the women’s discus throw.
