Shara Proctor expresses her unhappiness at her performance in the women's long jump final.

Team GB's Shara Proctor has admitted that she was disappointed with her performance in the final of the women's long jump at the Olympic Games in London earlier tonight.

The 23-year-old could only produce a best jump of 6.55m, which was good enough for ninth place.

"Today wasn't my day. I was struggling on the runway, to be honest. I just couldn't get it right," she told BBC Sport. "I came and tried my best, though I can't say I'm satisfied. Tonight just wasn't my game.

"I lost focus, and after my first couple of jumps I got frustrated. I guess that was my biggest problem."

Proctor transferred her allegiance to Britain from Anguilla in November 2010.
