The 400 was my race in my track days and in my eyes no track event matches the excitement of the 4x4! There is something so uniquely satisfying about watching my team win this race.Women's 4x400, dominating victory for the USA! @Plebe called the lineup, although the ran in a different order. McLaughlin > Felix. Then Muhammed, who opened a substantial lead. Anchor leg was 19-yo Mu, who made that lead gigantic! Time was 3.16.85, about 1.5 seconds slower than the world record.
A beautiful race. What i love about the 400m showed really well here -- relaxed, natural running style without the heavy tactical emphasis you see in longer races. And our gals all have beautiful form, better than average in my (perhaps biased) opinion. A joy to watch!
I thought the Jamaicans might have an outside chance to challenge, but word from the Jamaican camp was that Stephenie-Ann McPherson, who was narrowly beaten by Felix for bronze in the open 400, suffered some kind of hamstring injury in that race and couldn't go in the relay. In the end, that injury may have cost them silver (which a strong Poland team won) but they wouldn't have even gotten close to gold.
