LONDON- Former University of Colorado standout Jenny (Barringer) Simpson placed 12th in the second section of the 1,500-meter run and did not advance to the finals of the event on Friday.

Simpson finished in four minutes, 6.89 seconds on Wednesday night, which was much faster than her time of 4:13.81 in the first round.

"I'm disappointed only because I know I put in the work, and I know my coach knows I can do better than this," Simpson said. "I have no excuse. I'm not hurt, I'm not out of shape. I did a really, really great workout two weeks ago, and it is shame on me for not finishing what I started here."

The race got off to a very fast start and Simpson had worked her way to fourth around the midway point.  She got tucked into the rail during the next 400, failing back to seventh. Simpson was unable to get out and fell to the back of the pack where she would finish.
