World Athletics Championships American quartet seal women's 4x100m title

Allyson Felix's second leg of the race helped the US women gain ground, while 100-meter world champion Tori Bowie clinched the victory on a strong anchor leg.

Called the world's fastest woman, helped the USA track team win the 4x100 meter relay in a world-best 41.82 seconds. A weakened Jamaican quartet took bronze in a time of 42.91 seconds. Trinidad and Tobago finished in sixth place, with Brazil in seventh place and the Netherlands in eighth place.

Allyson Felix, part of that winning team in Daegu, ran the second leg before passing on to Morolake Akinosun who handed the baton to Bowie, the 100m world champion.

It was the eventual medallists who got off to the best starts, to begin with, with Brown slightly ahead of both Britain's Asha Philip and Jamaica's Jura Levy, though a tight change over from Philip to Dina Asher-Smith saw them fall a tad behind, and a storming second leg from Felix ahead of Jamaica's Natasha Morrison put America well and truly in the driving seat.

However, she looked in no discomfort as she surged down the final straight to win in 41.82 seconds.

Great Britain took silver in 42.12sec with Jamaica third in 42.19sec. Meanwhile, Ariana Washington will also receive a medal after replacing Bowie in the heats earlier on.
