Christophe Lemaitre and Adam Gemili in photo finish for bronze medal in Rio Olympics’ 200m

Three runners were separated by 0.01sec; and the bronze decided by 0.003.Rio de Janeiro: Usain Bolt again stole the show, but there was drama aplenty in the race for third behind the Jamaican and Canada’s Andre De Grasse in the 200m final on Thursday night.

Both Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre and Briton Adam Gemili clocked a time of 20.12 seconds, but Lemaitre got the nod for bronze in a photo finish. The gap between the runners in the photo was barely perceptible – recorded at just three-thousandths of a second.

Lemaitre’s emotions spilled over after he realised he had won bronze. A perennial finalist in the sprints at world championships and Olympic Games, the 26-year-old had never won an individual medal at either event until Thursday, with his lone previous Olympic medal being a relay bronze from London four years ago.

The thrilling finish follows a three-way dead heat for silver in the men’s 100m butterfly last week as legendary American Michael Phelps recorded an identical time to South Africa’s Chad Le Clos and Hungary’s Laszlo Cseh, all of whom played second fiddle to Singapore’s Joseph Schooling.

Rather than split the trio by going to the photo, all three swimmers were presented with silver medals. Spare a thought for Gemili, who missed out on bronze at the track.

Australia sneak into women’s 4x400m relay final at Rio Olympics

Rio de Janeiro: For Australia’s 4x400m relay team, it was a tale of a squeak, and then shrieks.

Having finished fourth in their heat, the team of Jess Thornton, Anneliese Rubie, Caitlin Sargent-Jones and Morgan Mitchell missed an automatic qualification berth for the final, and had to wait to see if their time of 3:25.71 would claim one of the last two spots.

Teenager Thornton described the tension as the team watched the conclusion of the second heat.

“[It was a] bit nerve-racking,” Thornton said.

But Germany – who finished fifth in heat two – could only muster 3:26.02, and Australia were through. Cue delirium, with the screams eminating from the tunnel clearly audible in the mixed zone.

“I think we all just saw the last two numbers instead of the middle two which was 26, and were all a little bit worried for that slight second, and then we realised it was 26 and we just screamed as loud as we could because we realised we’d made the final.”

It is the first time Australia has made the final since 2000.

For Mitchell it was some form of consolation after the disappointing of her last placing in her 400m semi-final earlier in the meet.

“I had to redeem myself I guess. I had a few dark days after the semis so I thought let’s just get back into the groove of things and make that final. We did that so I’m really happy.

“Jess Thornton as a roomie’s been amazing. She just said ‘stay positive. The past is in the past and let’s look forward.'”

Mitchell also said she had recieved support from 2000 Olympic gold medallist and mentor Cathy Freeman – who was in the 2000 relay team.

“You’re 21, we’ve all failed, if other people can’t understand it that’s their problem,” was the message from Freeman according to Mitchell.

Australia could consider making a change for the final – with Lauren Wells an option for the race on Saturday night (Rio time).

Australia finish last in women’s 4x400m final at Rio Olympics

Rio de Janeiro:  They are looking for a team nickname, and considered calling themselves “The Sheilas”.

And while they may not be “Golden Girls” yet, Australia’s youthful 4x400m team hope their appearance in the Rio Olympics final is the first of many, even if their showing this time was somewhat underwhelming.

Having scraped the final by the skin of their teeth, the combination of Jess Thornton, 18, Anneliese Rubie, 24, Caitlin Sargent-Jones, 24, and Morgan Mitchell, 21, failed to make a dent at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday night. Despite strong legs from Mitchell and Rubie, Australia finished last in the eight-team field.

On a night when they received the medals controversially won a night earlier in the 4x100m relay, the US retained their 4x400m crown for a sixth consecutive Games, holding off Jamaica to claim gold. Great Britain were a distant third. But aside from the US and Jamaica, the final was a relatively sluggish affair. The Americans won in 3:19.06, with Jamaica posting 3:20.34. The Britons could muster just 3:25.88, with Australia getting home in 3:27.45. It was nearly two seconds slower than they had run the previous night to qualify. Had they recorded their heats time of 3:25.71 in the final, Australia’s team of Olympic debutants would have taken an unlikely bronze medal.

As such the ambitious Mitchell was slightly frustrated, if still glad to have been part of the first Australian team to make the final in 16 years.

“[I’m] a bit disappointed on the time but we’ve worked so hard just to get to the Olympic final, and to be able to label ourselves Olympic finalists is pretty cool,” Mitchell said.

“But we know we’ve got a lot to work on in the coming years.

“At the end of the day it is what it is. It’s quite exciting knowing we were that close and that we’re still very young.”

Rubie was more upbeat, looking forward to next year’s world championships and the prospect of a Commonwealth Games gold medal on the Gold Coast in 2018.

“We’re very proud of each other,” Rubie said.

Rubie also joked about the team’s social media-driven search for a moniker. “Our favourite one was the ‘Sugar Gliders’ just because it was so bad,” she said.

“We were thinking ‘The Sheilas’ maybe just to take the piss out of it!”

The US win provided a sixth Olympic gold medal for Allyson Felix, further extending her lead as the most decorated female track and field athlete in Olympic history.

The last time Australia made the final of the event – in 2000 – Nova Peris-Kneebone, Tamsyn Lewis, Melinda Gainsford-Taylor and Cathy Freeman came fifth in an Australian record time.

Canberra Olympic one point away from Capital Football Premier League championship

Olympic’s Philippe Bernabo-Madrid finds his way around Woden’s Christopher McEwan. Photo: Rohan ThomsonFFA Centre of Excellence coach Tony Vidmar insists his side won’t be motivated by the chance to spoil Canberra Olympic’s Premier League title hopes when they clash on Saturday.

Olympic can seal the regular season league title if they beat the Centre of Excellence in the final round of the Capital Football Premier League campaign.

Olympic are level with Tigers FC on 42 points, but can leap ahead given they’ve got a game in hand.

The Centre of Excellence are fifth and will miss the play-offs, but can finish their season on a high and shake up the finals campaign for the top four.

Vidmar said the FFA development team was only focused on winning, not crushing Olympic’s championship hopes.

“Our plan is to go out there and play the game as if it’s any other game through the competition,” Vidmar said.

“We’ll go out there to win the game as normal and to play how we should be playing. It’ll be our last game so I think the players owe it to themselves to put in a good performance.

“Even though there’s something riding on the game for Olympic we’re going to go out there and focus on ourselves.”

Tigers FC are ranked higher than Olympic on goal difference, despite winning one less game during the regular season.

Olympic are also finalising their preparations for an FFA Cup clash against Redlands United on Wednesday night.

“We’ll just worry about ourselves. It worked for us previously and we’ll just stick with that,” said Olympic coach Frank Cachia.

Cachia said multiple do-or-die fixtures will benefit his team in the match against the Centre of Excellence.

“This year, with the FFA Cup and the Federation Cup, we’ve had to win every game,” Cachia said..

“It’s definitely one of those things where the pressure’s on and we’ve risen to the occasion a few times now so I think we’re getting acclimatised to it a little bit.

“We’ve brought that [do-or-die] mentality into the club now and the boys are proud of their record so they’ll be looking to maintain it.

“We’re not going to approach [the game against the Centre of Excellence] trying to avoid a loss, we’re going to still go out there and try to play our game and do our best to get a result.

“We’re in a position where we obviously want to get three points and put ourselves on the top of the table when it counts.”

“Whoever misses out – either us or Cooma – will feel a bit stiff to miss out. Whoever wins it will deserve it and whoever doesn’t get it will look back at the season and think ‘how did we not win the premiership’.”

Meanwhile, in other games Belconnen look to solidify third spot on the ladder when they host Woden Weston FC and Canberra FC will do their best to leap frog the Blue Devils by beating Gungahlin United on Sunday afternoon.

The home and away season finishes on Wednesday when Tuggeranong United play Vidmar’s Centre of Excellence.


Saturday: Canberra Olympic v FFA Centre of Excellence at AIS Grass Fields, 3pm; Belconnen United v Woden Weston FC at McKellar Park, 5:30pm

Sunday: Canberra FC v Gungahlin United at Deakin Stadium, Tuggeranong United v Monaro Panthers at Kambah 2-1. Both games at 3pm.

Wednesday: Tuggeranong United v FFA Centre of Excellence at AIS Grass Fields, 7pm.
