Rio 2016 Olympics: Women’s 4x100m Relay Results, Jamaica Through USA Out

Jamaica is through to the Women’s 4x100m Relay Finals, at the Rio 2016 Olympics. They were not impressive on the first and second legs and as such that left Veronica Campbell Brown, a lot of work to do on the bend. VCB delivered a superb run and handed over successfully to Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce, who blazed to the finish line for first place.

The Netherlands had another set back in the Women’s 4x100m Relay Round 1; as such Dafne Schippers will be out of the finals. On the other hand, Great Britain had a great all around run to take second place. Ukraine came home in third place.

The world record holder and Olympic champions, the USA, dropped the baton in the second heat and will not make qualify for the finals. At closer look, the race went terribly wrong between Allison Felix and English Gardener. English Gardener was outside of the box and in massive desperation Allison Felix decided to throw it to her.
