On Saturday night the final of the men’s 4×100 metre race was run in Eugene, Oregon at the World Athletics Championships. Canada won the race, the USA second and Great Britain third followed by Jamaica.
Jamaica’s team consisted of Ackeem Blake, Yohan Blake, Oblique Seville, and Jelani Walker in the same order from start to finish.
Jamaica currently holds the men’s world record which is 36.84s set by Nesta Carter, Michael Frater, Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt back in London at the 2012 Olympics Hames.
This is how the lanes were ordered: Brazil in lane 1, Jamaica in lane 2, lane 3 had the USA, lane 3 Canada, lane 5 France, lane 6 Great Britain, lane 7 South Africa and lane 8 had Ghana.
Going into the race, the US team was huge favourite, even though the 100-metre champion at the game who is from the USA was injured and did not take part in the race.
As a result of this latest race, Jamaican men are yet to win a medal at the World Championships.
