GB pair fail to secure 2012 place

OLYMPICS: British open water swimmers Dan Fogg and Tom Allen missed out on a chance to qualify for the London 2012 Olympics by finishing outside the top 10 at the World Championships. The pair could not repeat the success of Keri-Anne Payne, who won the women’s event on Tuesday to become the first British athlete to qualify for next year’s Games. Fogg, 23, finished 15th, while teenager Allen came home in 26th at the event in Shanghai.
