Wheating’s Olympic run ends

Print More

It was a great run to Beijing but the run for an Olympic medal at the 2008 games has ended for Norwich’s Andrew Wheating.

The 20-year-old runner was eliminated in the first qualifying round for the 800 meters race Wednesday.

Wheating finished fourth in his heat and needed at least a second place finish to move on to the semi-finals.

Wheating will return to the University of Oregon. His fellow 800 meters U.S. teammate Nick Symmonds did qualify for the semi-finals yesterday.
