The United States held off Jamaica in a thrilling finish to win the women’s 4x100 metres relay at the world championships on Saturday. The American quartet of Lauryn Williams, Allyson Felix, Mikele Barber and Torri Edwards tore around the Nagai stadium track in 41.98 seconds to pip the Jamaicans by little more than the thickness of a vest.

The Jamaican team of Sheri-Ann Brooks, Kerron Stewart, Simone Facey and Veronica Campbell took the silver in 42.01, just 0.03 behind the Americans, and bronze went to Belgium’s Olivia Borlee, Hanna Marien, Elodie Ouedraogo and Kim Gevaert in 42.75.

On the men’s side, the Americans held off a strong finish from Asafa Powell to take gold in a world-leading 37.78. Jamaica broke their national record again to take silver in 37.89. Olympic champion Great Britain won the bronze in 37.90.
