silver in the womens high jump Julie Crane.

Crane silver a slim consolation

Crane feels she was denied a chance of gold
Julie Crane's surprise silver medal for Wales at the high jump left her with mixed emotions as the 29-year-old felt she was denied a shot at gold.
She had cleared 1.88m and wanted a third attempt at 1.91m, but she broke the line of the bar as she pulled out of her initial attempt on the run-up.

"I protested at the time, but they wouldn't let me try again, it's really disappointing," said Crane.

South Africa's Anika Smith equalled her personal best of 1.91m to win gold.

The 19-year-old strung together an almost perfect sequence of jumps, failing just once on her first attempt at the winning height.

I feel I could have been in with a shout at gold

Julie Crane

That meant she was also ahead of Crane on countback, while Jamaica's Karen Beautle, won bronze.

Bautle was one of six competitors to go out of the competition at 1.88m but was awarded third place on countback.

"I have to be happy with silver, it's good to get another medal for Wales and my family and friends will be proud," said Nottingham-born Crane.

"It's disappointing because I didn't jump as high as I would have liked and the winning height was only one up.

"I feel I could have been in with a shout at gold."

Susan Moncrieff, of England, finished in sixth place, three places ahead of compatriot Julia Bennett.

I see that Rhys Williams came 4th in the 400m hurdles. A decent result for son of JJ one might say until you see the winner ran a second quicker and is the same age as young Rhys! :roll:

She's assuming that she would have cleared on her 3rd attempt - but having failed twice before the odds would appear to indicate that would not have happened. Still a bloody good result for the lass

Regarding Crane...rules are rules. Why does she expect dispensation? Its unfortunate, but her own fault.
