RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil ( – Jeffrey Julmis was met with a hard fall on the first hurdle in the Men’s 110-meter Hurdle semi-finals on Tuesday.

The two-time Olympian was clearly hurt from a tumble of several yards but rose up gingerly, in pain, and completed the race clearing all remaining hurdles.

With Julmis’ disqualifying run, his 2016 Olympic run is over. Haiti remains two athletes left in the Olympic games, two opportunities to medal for the first time since 1928[1].
