Uganda’s Winnie Nanyondo finished seventh to miss out on an Olympics medal at the Women’s 1500m final on Friday.
Nanyondo, however, recorded her season best of 3:59.80 at the distance.
In a fast track, Kenya’s Faith Kipyegon defended her title in an Olympics record time of 3:53.11, Laura Muir of Great Britain took silver in a National record time of 3:54.50.
Pre-race favourite Sifan Hassan came third, clocking 3:55.86.
Australia’s Linden Hall came sixth in a personal best time.
Nanyondo’s failure to get a podium finish leaves Peruth Chemutai as the only Uganda female athlete to win a medal at Olympics ever.
Chemutai won gold in the Women’s 30000m steeplechase.
It was an improved performance for Nanyondo whose best time this year at the distance was 4:00.84 she posted at the Wanda Diamond League in Florence.
Her time on Friday, however, was just below her personal best of 3:59.56 which she set in Rabat during the 2019 Diamond League.
