Jamaica Men 400X100 team, Helped by God in final

Today The streets of Jamaica are pictures of black, green and gold this morning following the country’s victory in the 4x100m relays.

The women sped to victory and stopped the clock in 41.07, a championship record and the second fastest time in history.

Jamaica bettered their own Championship Record of 41.29 seconds set in the 2013 Moscow IAAF World Championship.

But the women were not alone in their push to have the country’s anthem played again in Beijing.

The male quartet also sped to golden greatness in a world leading time of 37.36 seconds. This has allowed Jamaica to continue their dominance of the relays at the highest level.

Despite the fact that their main contender had four men who were also individual 100m finalists, the Jamaicans were not fazed.

“We do all things through God. We were very confident,” said Asafa Powell in a post relay interview.

The US team that was anchored by Mike Rodgers initially placed second but was later disqualified after a review showed Rodgers running outside of the prescribed 20m mark.

“We knew we were gonna win, they (USA) were too serious,” said Bolt.

“Pressure buss pipe,” an excited Powell added.
