Dina Asher-Smith has been knocked out of the women’s 100m at the semi-final stage of the Tokyo Olympics.
However, Team GB’s Daryll Neita was able to secure the final fastest loser place with her semi-final run of 11 seconds flat.
Asher-Smith, the 100m silver medalist from the 2019 world championships, ran in the first of three semi-final heats and recorded a time of 11.05.
The 25-year-old’s time was well below her personal best [10.83] and season’s best [10.91].
Elaine Thompson-Herah won Asher-Smith’s heat, with Ajla Del Ponte taking the second automatic qualifying place.
Great Britain’s Asha Philip’s campaign also came to an end as the former gymnast finished last in the second semi-final.
