India's middle distance runner Sinimole Paulose's last ditch effort to qualify for the London
Olympics came crashing down after she finished second in the women's 1500m at the Savo Games in Lapinlahti, Finland.
On the last day of qualification for the London Games on Sunday, Sinimole clocked 4:10.72s in Lapinlahti but it was not enough to book her place in the London Games as the Olympic 'B' standard qualification mark stood at 4:08.90s.
According to information received here, Assefa Meskerem of Ethopia (4:09.51s) topped the race ahead of Sinimole, while Finland's Johanna Lehtinen (4:15.27s) finished third.
Sinimole also failed to make the cut for London at the Folksam Sollentuna Grand Prix in Stockholm, Sweden last week, where she finished a disappointing seventh in the women's 1500m with a timing of 4:13.91s.
