  • Save

CALI, Colombia (August 5) — Jamaica women broke the world U20 record in the 4x100m relays and defended the title, while South Africa was disqualified in the men’s event after crossing the finish line in first place on Day 5 at the World Athletics U20 Championships 2022 on Friday (5).

What time did the Jamaica team run to set the world U20 4x100m relay record?

The team of Serena Cole, Tina Clayton, Kerrica Hill, and Tia Clayton returned a year later to clock 42.56 seconds to smash the previous world U20 record of 42.94 to retain their gold medal. It was this same team, and in this same exact order, that set the world U20 record in Nairobi, Kenya, last year.

USA finished a distant second but managed to grab the silver medal with a new national U20 record of 43.28, while Colombia secured the bronze medal at 44.59. Read more: World Athletics U20 Championships Cali 22 Day 5 order of events; how to watch on Aug. 5

Cole, the silver medalist in the 100m, got Jamaica off to a very quick start before handing the baton over to the individual 100m champion Tina Clayton who blasted down the back straight to put the defending champion in total command.

Tina Clayton then handed the baton over to sprint hurdle star Hill, who maintained the lead before exchanging to Tia Clayton, the twin sister of Tina, and she tore down the home straight to seal the victory in record-breaking fashion.

On the men’s side, meanwhile, defending champion South Africa crossed the line first but the celebrations ended prematurely after the team was disqualified for a lane violation.

So, Japan was promoted to the gold medal spot after initially finishing second with a time of 39.35 secs, the same time as second place Jamaica.

The United States, which initially finished off the podium in fourth, moved up to the bronze place with a time of 39.57 after the South Africans were disqualified.
