The Jamaicans have dominated the sprint races in Beijing, China. The anchors, Usain Bolt and Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce, blazed on the final legs and shut down all challengers. They have gold in the men’s 100m, 200m and 4*100m. The women have gold in the 100m and the 4*100m. It has been a really good nine days for the top sprint team in the world, Jamaica. They have remained respectful and humble.
The USA team which came in second in both women’s sprint relays, were properly beaten by several metres in both cases. However, at the time of their celebration for the men’s team, they were disqualified.
Its pure excitement at the IAAF World Championships Beijing 2015. The Chinese have put on an intriguing and amped up show; congrats to them.
