Facey, running for Jamaica, finished fourth in the second heat. That was not good enough for a spot in the finals.
Facey ran a 23.01. The top two spots in each of the three heats made the finals as well as the next two best times. Both of the at large qualifiers came from the third heat at 22.84 and 22.85.
Jamaica did not have anyone make the finals which will take place Friday.
