Jason Dunford bids London Games farewell

Kenya’s hopes of winning a swimming medal in the ongoing London Olympics were dashed when Jason Dunford failed to qualify for the 100m butterfly finals on Thursday night.
Commonwealth champion Jason finished 8th in heat 2, clocking a time of 52.16 seconds for him to be ranked 12th out of the 16 semifinalists.  
The competitive semis entertained the greatest Olympian of all-time Michael Phelps of US, and South African gold medalist Chad Le Clos who won heat 2 in a time of 51.42 seconds.
In heat 1, record setting Michael Phelps won in a time of 50.86 seconds to open his path of 20 Olympics medals, a new Olympics record.  
Hopes now turn to the opening day of track and field action where double champion Vivian Cheruiyot takes the track for the 10,000m on Friday evening.
