...

That's it from us, signing off, stay tuned to get the full list of Athletes who have qualified to the semi-finals.

...

Okay and it's official, Tintu Lukka won't qualify to the Semi-Final.

...

Tintu Lukka's time of 2:00:58 mins is a Olympic Record for India. Take a bow.

...

Tintu Lukka's' time of 2:00:58 mins time is faster than the second qualifier from Heat 1, so she still has a realistic chance of qualifying to the next round.

...

Selina Buchel of Switzerland and Margaret Nyairera of Kenya got the two automatic positions.

...

Only the top 2 from each heat qualify directly for the semifinals, while the top 8 overall after those also have a chance. It's looking unlikely for Tintu to progress at this stage, considering she finished 6th in her own heat.

...

She finished a very disappointing 6th in the heat, but there's still a slight chance that she finishes in the fastest 8.

...

It's strange that Tintu decided to start so quickly off the blocks. She had very little energy left for the end!

...

Noo. She fell off towards the end.

...

Disappointing finish from the Indian after leading the heat for practically the entire first half.

...

Tintu Lukka still in leading the race in the last few 300 metres.

...

And Tintu finishes in 6th!

...

Down to 3rd now.

...

She's slipped to 2nd now.

...

It's the final lap now, and Tintu continues to be at the top of the heap!

...

The Indian is still in the lead!@!!

...

Tintu Lukka has started really well, she is leading the race.

...

Tintu is in the lead!!!

...

Tintu looks poised and ready.

...

The third Heat is about to start.

...

Caster Semenya of South Africa and Ajee Wilson of USA has qualified to the semi-finals. Semenya with a time of 1:59.31 mins.

...

The second heat has started.

...

 Lynsey Sharp has clocked a time of 2:00.83, so if Tintu Luka hits her best time, she has a realistic chance of going to the next round.

...

The first two to qualify from the Women's 800 m, is Lynsey Sharp of Great Britain and Amela Terzic of Serbia.

...

Tintu Lukka is the current National record holder of Women's 800 m, her best being 1:59.17 mins.
