Behan suffers dislocated kneecap

Ireland's Kieran Behan missed out on a place in the Olympic artistic gymnastics final after suffering a dislocated kneecap in qualifying.

The 27-year-old, who was born in London to Irish parents, finished 14 places outside the qualifying positions, with an overall tally of 83.232.

Behan told the 42.ie that he sustained the injury during his first tumble of the floor exercise, but battled through the pain to finish with a score of 14.333, well off the qualifying mark for that discipline of 15.233.

"I felt it go and I just thought I’d carry on," he said.

"Going into floor I felt very good and I know what routine I’m capable of on floor but that’s life, isn’t it, at the end of the day.

"Throughout my life I’ve had little bits of bad luck here and there. It’s just one of them things. I’m very proud to have stepped out into this arena and given it a shot."

Behan battled illness as a youngster, suffering nerve damage as a 11-year-old following a botched attempt to remove a benign tumour, then spending three years in a wheelchair following a brain injury.
