Javelin thrower Annu Rani failed to qualify for the women's final here at the Olympic Stadium on Tuesday after an underwhelming show in the Women's Long Throws Qualification -- Group A.

Qualifying performance of 63.00 (Q) or at least 12 best performers (q) will advance to the final of the women's javelin throw. However, these 12 performers will be a compilation of competitors from Group A and B. The Group A qualification round will take place later in the day.

In her first attempt, Rani registered a throw of 50.35m. After the first attempt, Rani was placed at the ninth spot.

In the second attempt, the 28-year-old registered a throw of 53.19m and by the time everyone was done with their second attempt, Rani slipped to the 14th spot.

Annu registered a throw of 54.04m in her third and final throw and she was placed at the 14th spot when the Qualification Group A ended.

Poland's Maria Andrejczyk registered a throw of 65.24 in her very first attempt and as a result, she gained automatic qualification for the final.

Earlier in March this year, Annu rewrote her own national record with a 63.24m effort on the opening day of the 24th Federation Cup Senior Athletics Championships at the Netaji Subhas National Institute of Sports complex. (ANI)
