Swimming: Fran Halsall disappointed with sixth place finish
Great British hopeful Fran Halsall finished this evening’s 100m freestyle in a disappointing sixth.
Hopes were high for the 22-year-old, who was the fastest off of the starting line, but left fans wanting more after an eventual time of 53.66.
She told the BBC: "I just didn't have it today. I can't change it now unfortunately; I gave it my best shot. But the time just wasn't there. At least I've still got 50m to come. I feel a bit better about 50 right now than the 100m."
Halsall is back in action tomorrow for the 50m Freestyle Heats and the 4 x 100 Medley Relay Heats.
Great Britain currently has two medals in the pool so far after Michael Jamieson bagged his nation a silver medal in the 200m breaststroke and Rebecca Adlington was awarded a bronze medal for her efforts in the 400m freestyle.
