Prince George Track and Field Club member Alyx Treasure finished in a tie for 21st place in the preliminary round of the women's high jump Thursday at the IAAF world championships in London, England and did not advance to Saturday's final round.
It was not what Alyx Treasure envisioned for her debut at the IIAF world track and field championships.
The 25-year-old Prince George Track and Field Club member finished in a tie for 21st place Thursday in London, England in the preliminary round of the women's high jump and will not advance to Saturday's final.
Treasure successfully cleared 1.85 metres but failed in all three attempts at 1.89 m. 
Had she achieved her season-best 1.92 m, set a month ago at the Canadian championships in Ottawa, Treasure would have qualified for the final round. The personal-best for the 2016 Olympic team member is 1.94 m.
Five athletes in the preliminaries Thursday, Katarina Johnson-Thompson of Great Britain, Inika McPherson of the United States, Yuliia Levchenko of the Ukraine, Kamila Licwinko of Poland and Russian Maria Lasitkene (who competed as a authorized neutral athlete) cleared the bar at 1.92 m on their first attempts. Twenty jumpers advanced to the final round.
