HONG KONG - Sarah Lee Wai-sze crashed out of the women's keirin semifinals at Rio on Saturday.

The 29-year-old crashed and fell with less than a lap to go after contact with Australia's Anna Meares.

It means Lee missed out on a place in the final, and was ranked 7th in the event.

Meares, a four-time world champion, won bronze.

Elis Ligtlee of the Netherlands made a decisive move in the last lap to take the gold, beating British Rebecca James to the second place.

Lee, who won bronze in the same event at the London Games four years ago, said she was disappointed but has already calm down. She will focus on Sunday's sprint, she added.
