Great to see Morgan Mitchell representing the green and gold in the 800m. Morgan raced in Heat 1 of the Women's 800m. It was a strong effort coming through the first lap in 1:01.9, 0.7 of a second off the race leader, however could not quite hold on for a qualifying position.
As Morgan put it herself "Tough journey just to get here, and in the end it just wasn't my day. Still processing everything, but I'll be sweet".
It may not have been the outcome you had hoped for, but we are all proud of how you have represented yourself and Australia. Congratulations on being a dual Olympian!
