English fails to progress in 800 metres

There was disappointment for Donegal’s Mark English in the heats of  the men’s 800 metres at the Olympics on Saturday morning.

Running in heat 5 of 6, the Letterkenny man finished fourth in his heat, in a time of  1min 46.75secs.

This wasn’t quick enough for him to progress to the semi-finals.

Watch is race back here:

The top three from each heat plus the six fastest losers qualified for the semi-finals.
