In the women’s 20km race walk on Saturday, Team GB’s Johanna Jackson was disqualified due to a foot foul.
Jackson was omitted from the race for putting a foot out of place around the eight kilometre mark.
Unfortunately today wasn't to be and I got disqualified. I didn't think there was anything wrong with my technique, but obviously the judges saw that there was.
I was on for a personal best and I gave it everything, it just wasn't to be.
Jackson, who began race walking ten years ago, added:
The 27-year-old who started race walking 10 years ago, finished 22nd in Beijing in 2008. The race was won by Russia’s Elena Lashmonova, with reigning champion Olga Kaniskina, who had led for the majority of the race, settling for second.
"It meant everything to compete in front of this crowd and obviously I'm really gutted. I feel I've let everyone down now."
