The story of Kelsi Worrell and her Olympic run came to a close in the semifinals. Worrell finished 9th in the women's 100m butterfly.
After her first place finish in heat five of the preliminaries with a time of 56.97 she was a favorite to take a medal. In her heat of the semifinals Worrell found herself in fourth and on the edge of qualifying. Only the top eight from the sixteen qualify to the finals. After the second heat finished Worrell dropped down and just out of reach from making the finals.
For a multi-time NCAA national champion and an American record holder an Olympic medal would have been a nice addition to the resume. Although Worrell's 2016 Olympic run is over expect to see great things to come from her in the future, including a 2020 Olympic appearance.
