Sophie Hitchon finished 12th in the hammer final at the Olympic Stadium following an impressive qualifying throw.

The 21-year-old athlete, who broke her British record with a 71.98m throw in qualifying, could only manage a best of 69.33m on Friday.

It would have taken a huge personal best to make the top-eight cut.
