Former Windsor Lancer Melissa Bishop finished fifth in the women’s 800 metres at the World Track and Field Championships in London, England.

It was a devastating loss for Bishop, who finished in one minutes, 57.68 seconds.

The 29-year-old from Eganville, Ont., had hoped to get on the podium.

Caster Semenya of South Africa won gold in 1:55.16.

Bishop raced to silver at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, but finished a heartbreaking fourth at last summer’s Rio Olympics.
