The British duo of Lisa Dobriskey and Hannah England have mixed fortunes in the semi-finals of the women's 1,500m.

Great Britain's Lisa Dobriskey has qualified for the final of the women's 1,500m at the Olympic Games in London.

However, her compatriot Hannah England looked jaded and ended up well out of the qualification places.

It appeared to be a comfortable race for Dobriskey, who placed herself on the outside of the pack with two laps of the track remaining.

She then accelerated down the home straight to secure fourth place in a time of 4:05.35, while England could only finish ninth.

The race was won by Asli Cakir Alptekin in 4:05.11, while Ekaterina Kostetskaya, Morgan Uceny and Shannon Rowbury also qualified for Friday's final.
