Fort Worth TCU standout Khadevis Robinson turned in a disappointing time in the men's 800m Monday at the 2012 London Games.

 
Robinson found himself quickly behind the majority of the pack and was seated firmly in 6th place after the first 400m.
 
During the second lap, on the final stretch, Robinson was able to move up to fifth, but no further.
 
With the finish, Robinson will not advance to the semifinal.
 
Botswana's Nijel Amos came in first and advanced to the semifinal along with Brazil's Fabiano Pecanha and Kuwait's Mohammad Al-Azemi. http://www.nbcolympics.com/track-and-field/event/men-800m/index.html?v=20120806-110351477
 
Robinson was born in Dallas, but raised in Fort Worth.
