Christine Merrill, the aforementioned ‘hot hurdler’ representing Sri Lanka has lost her heat in the 400m hurdles, finishing 30th out of 41 overall. So not great, but not completely last. You can watch her race here, heat five begins about 32:50 in. You can also see the warm-ups for the thrilling mens 100m at the same time. I think this means Sri Lanka is effectively out of the Olympics. One does miss the days of Susanthika a bit.
