EUGENE, Oregon (July 23) — USA, Great Britain, and Jamaica are the fastest qualifiers for the women’s 4x400m final at the World Athletics Championships Oregon 22 after the semi-finals on Day 9 on Saturday (23).

The United States team that included Allyson Felix on the second leg, advanced to the final with the fastest time at 3:23.38 to win the first heat ahead of Great Britain which clocked 3:23.92 to move into the final with the second quickest time.

The USA will get significantly stronger with the likes of Dalilah Muhammad, Sydney McLaughlin, and Athing Mu expected to run in the final. Read more: Sydney McLaughlin smashes 400m hurdles world record with stunning 50.68 – World Athletics Championships 2022

“I don’t think they’ll need me tomorrow,” Felix, who ran 50.61 seconds on her second leg, told reporters.

The 13-time world champion was called up to race in the heats of the women’s, and she got back on a plane to Eugene, Oregon.

“They just called me and asked if I am willing to be in and I am here,” said Felix. “It is really cool, I did not expect it to happen.

“But I am always up to run with this team. All of us ran pretty hard to put our team in a position for tomorrow. This is really special.”

Meanwhile, Jamaica, which ran without both 400m finalists Stephenie Ann McPherson and Candice McLeod dominated the second semi-final heat with a time of 3:24.23 to qualify with the third-best time entering the medal race.

After the top three teams, the rest of the field includes Belgium (3:28.0), Canada (3:28.49), Italy (3:28.89), and France (3:28.89).

Meanwhile, despite a blistering 49.3 split from Femke Bol on the anchor leg, the Netherlands didn’t advance to the final after they were disqualified for a dropped baton on the exchange between the second and third leg runners.
