Out of the Blocks Rio96
Going back to the Women's Heptathlon, it was time for the 200 Meter race. With the large field, the competitors were split into several heats. Since they are racing the clock more than each other, the finishing time was the important thing. Jessica Ennis-Hill (Great Britain), who is the defending Gold Medalist from the London Games, took this race victory, and moved herself into first overall. Running next to her was Brianne Theisen-Eaton who faded on the home stretch, She now sits in seventh place after the first day of the event. These women will be back at it tomorrow.
