Bangladesh experienced a mixed day on Friday at the 2016 Rio Olympics as athlete Shirin Akter and swimmer Sonia Akter Tumpa were ousted in their respective events.
Sprinter Shirin was eliminated after Bangladesh's fastest woman finished fifth in the heats of the 100-metre event.
The 22-year old from Satkhira clocked 12.99 seconds and only finished above other participants from Afghanistan, Angola and Marshall Islands. Shirin ended her campaign at 17th position among 24 participants.
However, even though Sonia exited in the heats of the women's 50m freestyle event, the Jhenaidah swimmer recorded her best ever personal timing – 29.99s.
Sonia concluded her mission at 69th place out of 88 participants.
