The Jamaican team considered the underdogs beat all odds and relegated the favoured USA team to a bronze. This action took part at The World Championships taking place in Doha.

Jamaica’s team which included Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce who was placed at the second baton change. She gave a splendid metre or two lead which made Jamaica’s winning prospects unstoppable.  The British who came second to the Jamaicans or Pre relay favourites had to just wonder what hit them.  Sherieka Jackson anchored the relay team to a 42 + seconds win.

The baton changes were like clock work … unblemished and very professional.

Congrats to the Jamaican team. Simply the best.  Today Saturday 5th October 2019 we got two medals. A silver medal in the long jump and the gold as stated above in the 4 ×100 relay.

We are simply the best in the world.
