Grice Bumped out of Qualification

A very slow race spelt danger and disappointment for Charlie Grice (Brighton Phoenix) in his heat of the 1500 metres in Rio on Tuesday.

A pedestrian pace meant that all the runners were bunched  as they rounded the final bend but although Grice had got himself in a good position as they sprinted to the finish he was overwhelmed and buffeted by other runners.

He was strongly fancied to qualify for the second round and it was hoped that he would reach the final but in the buffeting he lost his pace and slipped out of contention.
