Jamaica 4x100m 37.04s World Record (Video) - Daegu World Championship 2011

>> September 04, 2011

Jamaican team defended the world 4x100m title and set a new world record 37.04s, breaking the previous mark 37.10s set by Jamaican Olympic team in Beijing 2008. The team consists of Nesta Carter 9PB 9.78), Michael Frater (PB 9.88), Yohan Blake (PB 9.89) and Usain Bolt (PB 9.58 WR).

France team, the European champion went to win the silver medal in a time of 38.20s. Saint Kitts and Nevis (SKN) team, as a surprise won the bronze medal in 38.49s - thus enabled Kim Collins, the 2003 world 100m champion to bag two bronze (the other one from the men's 100m) home. The SKN team broke the old national record (39.07s) with a great improvement to 38.47s in the semifinal to win the last (8th) slot of finalist.

Medal prospect teams United States and Great Britain, however did not finish the race due to a massive incident involving their runners on the track. Darvis Patton of United States (lane 4) collided with Harry Aikines of Great Britain (anchor, lane 3) coming into the last change-over (with anchor Walter Dix), then collapsed to the track. Perhaps affected by the clash, Marlon Devonish was unable to hand over the baton to Harry who has a big and strong physique and seems "okay" with the collision.

Meanwhile Trinidad and Tobago team, the silver medalist in 2009 world championships, failed to repeat the semifinals performance (37.91s) after a poor baton exchange between Aaron Armstrong and Richard Thompson (anchor). That's obviously affected by collision after Darvis Patton crashed to their lane and disrupts the baton exchange.
