Jamaica Dominate 4X100 Relay In Moscow To Win Gold


Jamaica-relay-teamUsain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce put on a good show at the Moscow World Championship today when the Jamaican team won the 4X100 meter relay.

The men’s team consisted of Nickel Ashmeade, Kemar Bailey-Cole, Usain Bolt and Nesta Carter clocked 37.36 seconds to capture the gold medal.

The women’s team consisted of Carrie Russell, Kerron Stewart, Schillonie Calvert and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce set a new championship record with 41.29 seconds on the clock.

“I wasn’t really worried about Justin. I knew if he got the baton in front of me, I could catch him,” Usain Bolt said. “So it was just going out there to run as fast as possible.”

With this win, Usain Bolt becomes the person with the all-time highest medal tally at the World Championship games with eight gold and two silver. Carl Lewis is now the second highest with eight gold, one silver and one bronze.
