That's it from us today. Thank you for joining us for the women's 200m heats!  

...

24 athletes go to the semi-finals which will be held on 17th August and the finals will be on 18th August.

...

So, that's it for the women's 200m heats.

Disappointing for Srabani Nanda, who couldn't improve on her personal best and finished with a time of 23.58. She ranks 55th out of 72 runners.

...

Oduing of Bahrain wins the final heat with a time of 22.74, followed by Semoy Hackett of Trinidad & Tobago. Both of them had fantastic starts to qualify for the semi-finals.

...

Cambell-Brown finishes only 3rd! 

...

The final heat of the women's 200m is about to start. The heat includes Veronica Campbell-Brown, who is a favourite, with a personal best time of 21.74 seconds.

...

Murielle Ahoure of Ivory Coast took a good start, but lost momentum in the end. She finishes second with a time of 22.52 and Tori Bowie of USA wins the heat with a time of 22.47. 

...

Get ready for Heat 8!

...

The semi-finals of the women's 200m event will be held 17th August and the finals on the 18th.

...

Ella Nelson of Australia finished 22.66 and Jodie Williams finishes agonisingly close in third place at 22.69. That's close!!

...

Ivet Lalova-Collio of Bulgaria finishes 1st in that closely fought race and finishes with a time of 22.61.

...

That's the closest finish in the 200m today!

...

Heat 7 about to start now.

...

Allyson Felix's gold medal time in London 2012 was 21.88.

...

Three heats remaining in the women's 200m.

...

The World Record and Olympic Record for the 200m is held by Florence Griffith (21.34) at the 1988 Olympics.

...

Ta Lou Marie-Josee's 22.31 is still the fastest time of the day.

...

Stevens' time of 22.45 is the second fastest time so far.

...

That was a time of 22.45 by Stevens. She looked super comfortable in that race. Nercely Soto of Venezuela followed her closely at 22.89. 

...

Deajah Stevens of USA finishes that heat quite easily in 1st.

...

Heat 6 is going to start next.

...

Het time of 23.58 is lesser than her personal best of 23.07.

...

It looks like that's it for Nanda. She won't be going through to the semi-finals with that time.

...

Blessing Okagbare finishes at 1st with a time of 22.71 and followed by Dina Asher-Smith of Great Britain at 22.77.

...

Srabani Nanda finishes her race at 23.58 and in 6th place in Heat 5.

...

She starts in Lane 6.

...

Heat 5 is about to begin! Srabani Nanda is going to race now!

...

Marie-Josee's is the fastest time so far.

...

Ta Lou Marie-Josee qualified with a time of 22.31 and Thompson finishes at 22.63.

...

Ta Lou of Ivory Coast wins that one comfortably and is followed by Elaine Thompson.

...

Heat 4 of the 200m race is to start now.

...

India's Srabani Nanda will race in Heat 5.

...

Elaine Thompson, one of the favourites is starting in the next heat.

...

The Trinidad & Tobago runner finishes the race in 22.50 and is followed by Simone Facey of Jamaica.

...

Michelle-Lee Ahye has such a huge lead that she trudges past the finish line.

...

Kauiza Venancio, the Brazilian runner gets a huge cheer when her name is announced.

...

Remember, the top two from each heat qualifies to the semi-final and the next 6 fastest runners.

...

Four athletes have qualified for the semi-finals from the two heats held so far.

...

Lisa Mayer of Germany finishes second with a time of 22.86.

...

She qualifies with a time of 22.62.

...

Jenna Prandini from the USA wins the heat quite comfortably.

...

Heat 2 is to start next.

...

Crystal Emmanuel after that brilliant start finishes third with a personal best of 22.80.

...

Dafne Schippers finishes 1st with a time of 22.51 and Natalia Pohrebniak finishes 2nd with a time of 22.64.

...

Crystal Emmanuel had a wonderful start.

...

Heat 1 of the 200 m starts now.

...

Dafne Schippers came into the Games as the clear favourite but her mystery injury at the 100m race makes Elaine Thompson of Jamaica the favourite today. 

...

Srabani will be competing against Anthonique Strachan, Gina Bass, Gayane Chiloyan, Blessing Okagbare, Aurélie Alcindor, Dina Asher-Smith and Tessa van Schagen.

She will start the race from Lane 6.

...

Nanda will find it tough to win a medal as her personal best of 23.07 is way off the gold medal time set by Alyson Felix (21.88) at London 2012. 

Her target today would be to break her personal best.

...
