Bhubaneswar, July 30 -- Ace sprinter of India Dutee Chand finished 45th in the Heats of women's 100m on day seven of the Tokyo Olympics to be out of contention for the sprint event on Friday.

Racing alongside the legendary Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, the sprint star finished with seventh rank in Heat 5. She got off to a decent start and kept a solid pace but failed to sustain it for long.

Ivory Coast's Marie-Josee Ta Lou won the Heat with a time of 10.78, setting a new African record. Jamaican sprinters Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce finished second and third respectively. In total, 24 athletes qualified for the semis.

Dutee was nowhere near her best as she clocked 11.54 seconds in 100m, well outside her national record...
