Live blog – Rio Olympic Games day 9

14 August 2016

A quiet day nine for University of Bath-connected athletes sees just 400m runner Emily Diamond compete.

25-year old Diamond, competing at her first Olympic Games, finished fourth in her heat with a time of 51.76 – despite a bout of food poisoning – to reach the semi-finals.

The European champion set a PB of 51.23 earlier this year and will be looking to replicate that time from lane one in the second semi-final tonight.
