U.S. women shock Jamaica to win 4x100 relay; U.S. men flounder again at world championships
For the U.S. women's relay team, this was a shock
In the 4x100 relay at the world championships on Saturday, the women shocked Jamaica while the men,
who were much favoured, came in second after a clumsy baton handover that has been a tradition since before any member of this team was even born.
Canada won the men's race in 37.48 seconds thanks to Andre DeGrasse's 0.07-second triumph over Marvin Bracy at the finish line.
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica continued her winning streak. Since 2007, she has participated in every world relay and won gold or silver in each one
However, no Jamaican team entered the relay with thoughts of finishing in second place this year.
It will be favored for medals in the men's and women's 4x400 and the women's 800 with Olympic champion Athing Mu.
