U.S. reclaim 4x100m world title, Britain take silver

LONDON (Reuters) – Person champion Tori Bowie anchored the U.S. to victory within the girls’s 4×100 meters relay on the World Championships on Saturday.

The American Citizens, Olympic gold medalists in Rio remaining yr, have been led off by using Aaliyah Brown who flew out of the blocks to start out the run that brought them the arena title they ultimate received in 2011.

Allyson Felix, a part of that successful group in Daegu, ran the 2nd leg prior to passing on to Morolake Akinosun who surpassed the baton to Bowie, the 100m world champion.

The 26-yr-old had pulled out of competing within the 200m previous within the week due to struggling cuts and bruises in her sprint triumph closing Sunday.

However, she appeared in no pain as she surged down the final straight to win in 41.Eighty Two seconds.

Bowie was shadowed all of the approach to the line by using Briton Daryll Neita who led her crew to silver, in 42.12, in advance of 2015 champions Jamaica who were missing their average anchor runner in Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

It used to be the sixth time the U.S. have gained the event and the gold was once also a record 15th World Championship medal for Felix.
