The Jamaica team of Nesta Carter, Michael Frater, Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt, set the world record of 37.04 seconds to better their own previous mark of 37.10, set at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.
The Jamaicans were without regular anchorman Asafa Powell, but Bolt proved too much for his rivals winning by close to 20metres to get his first world record at the championships.
The United States failed finish after Darvis Patton tripped prior to approaching Walter Dix at anchor. Great Britain also failed to finish after falling apart at the final exchange as well.
Trinidad and Tobago, the silver medallist at the Beijing Games, were also affected by the Americans trip and finished down the track.
This opened the way for France to take silver and another bronze came for the veteran Kim Collins when St Kitts and Nevis held on for third place.To send email correction or further classifications, please shoot us an email at lcummings [at] world-track.org.
