Team GB's Fran Halsall misses out on medal again at the Aquatics Centre


Fran Halsall was fifth in the 50 metres freestyle as Ranomi Kromowidjojo claimed the sprint double on the final night of competition at the Aquatics Centre.

The 22-year-old was desolate after coming sixth in the 100 metres freestyle in which she coveted a medal more than in any other event.

Qualifying fifth fastest from last night's semi-final, the 22-year-old was in contention for a medal all the way but she missed out on the touch in 24.47 seconds.
