Trinidad & Tobago Wins Gold In Men’s 4x400m – London World Championships

In a shocking outcome for the historically dominant U.S. men’s 4x400m relay team, Trinidad & Tobago’s Lalonde Gordon surged ahead of Team USA’s anchor Fred Kerley in the final 100 meters to claim his country’s first-ever gold medal in the event.

The race marked Team USA’s first loss at the world championships in the men’s 4x400m relay since 2003.

What’s even more incredible about the upset is Trinidad & Tobago didn’t land any athletes on the 2017 top 20 list in the 400m, while the U.S. has nine.
