The 17-year-old made a tearful exit after jumping 1.85m, leaving her joint 17th in the overall standings while Spain's Ruth Beitia, Marie-Laurence Jungfleisch of Germany and Lithuania's Airine Palsyte qualified with jumps of 1.89.

Lake headed into the competition having won two gold medals at the World Junior Championships this year, but failed to repeat her success in Switzerland.

The teen's participation was her first in a senior tournament.
