Sudha Singh could not match Lalita’s feat in steeplechase race and finished a lowly ninth with a time of 9:43.29. The winner in the third heat was Hyvin Kiyeng Jepkemoi who finished with a time of 9:24.61. That time itself ensured that Lalita Babar qualified for the final as one of the six fastest athletes who finished outside the top three in their heat.
