The team, consisting of Julien Alfred, Ezinne Abba, Rhasidat Adeleke, and Kevona Davis, had previously set the collegiate record of 41.89 seconds at the Big 12 Championships in Norman, Oklahoma, back in May. However, they outdid themselves this time, obliterating their own record and emerging as the undisputed favorites for the gold medal in the final.

The Texas women’s winning time today also matches the 5th-fastest team on the all-time world list, an achievement on par with Great Britain’s Tokyo 2021 Olympic team.

Throughout history, only the United States (40.82), Jamaica (41.02), Germany (41.37), and Russia (41.49) have recorded faster times than the Texas Longhorns women’s 4x100m relay team.

The hosts also broke the facility record of 42.00secs they set at the 2023 Texas Relays in April, and lowered the meet record of 42.09secs, which was set by LSU in 2018.

In addition to Texas, other teams that advanced to the final included Kentucky, who matched their program record with a time of 42.30 seconds in their semi-final victory, as well as Ohio State, who clocked a time of 42.68 seconds in the second semi-final.

LSU (42.84), USC (42.88), Georgia (42.93), Oregon (43.09), Arkansas (43.10), and Baylor (43.15) also secured their places in the final.

It was the third time Texas has broken the women’s 4x100m collegiate record this season.
