With the highly anticipated IAAF World Championships only a few weeks away, World Track and Field Web Site has put together a group with our own predictions based on who we believe have the strongest chances of winning medals in Berlin, Germany.

Breaking things down into groups will make it a little more interesting for you our viewers, as you will be able to interact more on specific distances and field events. Today it’s all about the excitement of the unexpected relay races. Hopefully you will join in with your very own scoops – maybe there is something to learn that was missed.

Men – 4x100m
United States
Trinidad & Tobago

Medal Dark-horse: Great Britain

World-Track Dig: If Yohan Blake makes the team no one in the world can match him on the second leg and then with safe changes, Asafa Powell will anchor Jamaica to another world record.

Women – 4x100m
United States

World-Track Dig: Jamaica will be their only challenge here. If they get the baton around, this is another world record.

Men – 4x400m
United States
Great Britain

World-Track Dig: No one can match the Americans here. With Wariner and Merritt running so well, the race will be for the silver and bronze.

Women – 4x400m
United States

World-Track Dig: USA are the favourite, but I smell an upset with Russia coming out on top. What can I say I love living on the edge.

  1. You matched my predictions of the two 4X100 perfectly. Jamaica has no chance in the men’s 4X400m unless one of the two majors drop out. For the women’s 4X400m I believe Jamaica can get second if they all execute well, run smart races.

  2. For Jamaica to win silver the Williams’ will have to run super fast legs, because the next two girls are not very strong this year
