    Jamaica with a great run as probably expected. 8th fastest of all time.

    I think the Americans finished as expected as well considering their team relative to others.

    OK, there were no major stars on the anchor of the top 3 teams, but still, a mean leg from Jackson.

    Shericka Jackson has run 4x1 anchor before but this was bold after she went back to focusing on the 400 this year. The American announcers kept saying that Dina A-S was on anchor for Britain but she ran the second leg. It looked SAFP did some major damage there, even reeling in Dina a bit. Great race!

    With Thompson and Brianna out, Jackson was arguably the best sprinter not named Smith, Shelly and Whyte that Jamaica has.

    plus I suppose with her on anchor means she's only having to do one baton hand off. she did great DAS didn't really gain much at all. Ben a great champs for her especially given her performance in the 400. Maybe another medal in the 4x400 too.

    In the off season and just watch this video:

    This was Shericka on anchor in the yellow. This was her final year in HS I believe.

    I got confused, too. DAS and Neita look very much alike when you see them in this sort of TV shot.
