Kenia Sinclair was expected to perform well for Jamaica on day six in heat three of the 800 metres qualifying round, however she was not able to start due to injuries. She started to feel discomfort or tightness in her knee while she was in the warm up area, just before her event.
Jamaica’s 110 metres hurdler Richard Phillips hit the hurdles in the mid section of his race and was not able to finish his semi-final. It is still unclear whether he was injured. However, teammate Hansle Parchment performed very well to finish second in his semi-final race. He will move on, easily, to the 110 metre’s final for men at the London 2012 Olympics.
