Jamaica's Olympic hurdler threw herself on the ground in a fit of hysteria after tripping over a hurdle and missing her last shot at a medal.
Race favourite Brigitte Foster-Hylton, 37, was inconsolable after clipping the hurdle in the sixth preliminary heat of the women's 100m event last night in.
US rival Lolo Jones rushed over and tried to put an arm around her.
"She's been so dominant and for her not to have an Olympic medal, I'm devastated for her," Jones said after the race.
"I tried [to console her], but honestly, the emotions were outpouring from her. If she would've punched me, I totally would understand because... we work so hard for this."
