Britons miss out on final spots
Great Britain's men suffered disappointment in the Olympic semi-finals of both the 400m and 1500m on Sunday evening.
Ross Murray and Andy Baddeley finished 10th and eighth respectively in their semi-finals in the 1500m.
"I had done everything right until 300 to go, I had stayed out of trouble and then the legs just weren't there," said Murray.
There was also no luck for the Brits in the men's 400m as Conrad Williams (45.53), Nigel Levine (45.64) and Martyn Rooney (45.31) finished eighth, sixth and fifth respectively in the semi-finals.
Rooney said: "I don't think in all honesty you can call that a decent race. When I normally open up my stride and pull away in the final 100m it just wasn't there and that's been the story of this year."
Double-amputee runner Oscar Pistorius also failed to reach the 400m final, the South African finishing last in his semi-final on his carbon-fibre blades in 46.54.
"The whole experience is mind-blowing," said Pistorius. "My aim was to make the semi-final. It's a dream come true. Thanks to everyone for their support. I've got the (4x400m) relay in a few days."
