Australia recorded the slowest time of all teams in the heats. 44.69s...... Team consisted of Margaret Gayen, Ella Nelson, Elly Graf & Monica Brennan.

I guess it's an OK time for a team that did not consist of one athlete who has run sub 11.70 this season. But I'm not sure we should be sending teams that are that far short of international level.

On the current 2014 rankings none of the top six fastest were in the team - Breen 11.11, Pearson 11.27, Whitaker 11.51,  Cutmore 11.60, Basic 11.64, Chambers 11.69.

Report: Men's 4x200m – Nassau 2014 WORLD RECORD

Parker Morse for the IAAF
25th May 2014


Jamaica’s men’s 4x200m quartet improved the world record* by 0.05 with a run of 1:18.63 at the IAAF World Relays in Nassau, The Bahamas, on Saturday (25).

Nickel Ashmeade, Warren Weir, Jermaine Brown and 2011 world 100m champion Yohan Blake combined to win the first prize of US$50,000 and a world record bonus of US$50,00.

The previous world record of 1:18:68 was set by an all-US quartet in 1994.

In the end the 20-year-old 4x200m world record that had been on the books in the name of the fabled Santa Monica Track Club did indeed fall, but it required some heroics in the form of an unofficial 19-flat anchor leg by Blake from a rolling start.

The Jamaicans were pressed early by a blazing first leg from Antoine Adams of St Kitts and Nevis out in lane eight and as his compatriot Lestrod Roland came down the homestretch he swung his left arm – the one holding the baton – over his head as though to invite the others to come along, which they eventually did.

Jamaica passed the finish line to start the second lap in 39.00, although with a four-turn stagger and starting in lane three, Jamaica had somewhat more than 400m to run at that point. Nevertheless, Brown and Blake completed the second tour of the track in 39.63.

An expected challenge from the US team failed to materialise as their second exchange, from Moscow 2013 200m bronze medallist Curtis Mitchell to Ameer Webb, initially missed and was completed outside the zone.

The US team continued and crossed the line third, unable to overhaul the St Kitts quartet, but following their disqualification third place went to France.

Again there was a rash of national records behind the world record.

St Kitts and Nevis put up a mark of 1:20.51, with Brijesh Lawrence and Allistar Clarke finishing for their quartet.

France, with Christophe Lematire leading off and Fonsat, Bassaw and Romain bringing it home, established a European record of 1:20.66; notably both St. Kitts and Nevis and France ran with the same line ups for the final as they did for the heats.

Barbados (fourth, 1:21.88) and Kenya (fifth, 1:22.35) also set national records.

Earlier, Jamaica were the easy winners of the first heat in 1:20.14, running Rasheed Dwyer, Brown, Jason Livermore and Weir, with France next (1:21.45) and St. Kitts and Nevis (1:21.97) third.

The USA quartet of Maurice Mitchell, Curtis Mitchell, Isaiah Young and Wallace Spearmon ran 1:21.35 to take the second heat easily, with Spearmon easing up at the line. Barbados at 1:21.88 and Kenya third at 1:23.24 took the automatic qualifying spots; The Bahamas and China then advanced on time from the first heat, the former with a national record of 1:22.18.

Sebastian Coe: World Relays will become a permanent fixture after passion of Nassau

By Sebastian Coe
UK Telegraph
26 May 2014


I have four children. All sporty but not, I confess, with the obsessions of their father at a comparable age, who thought of little else but the next training session. If there is a common sport among them, it is hockey. In fact, I have watched more hockey than athletics, and even my beloved Chelsea, in the last half decade and got quite to like it if truth be told.

All four are living proof of the influence of a coach of towering inspiration. In their case, Steve Bachelor, a member of our great Olympic-winning team from the Seoul Olympics.

Only my youngest, for the time being, has chosen to focus on athletics. I cannot have everything though – she has eschewed the gold ribbon middle distances and joined the ranks of the sprinters and, as is often the case, twinning on occasion as a long jumper. This however comes with a warning. I remember as a rookie in the British team listening to one of our more seasoned international long jumpers telling everyone she was looking forward to retirement and not ending up every day with sand in her pants.

A couple of weeks ago I went to watch her first athletics outing of the year. She competed well – a good 100 metres, if a little wind assisted, and a reasonable early-season mark in the long jump. But it was at the end of the formal proceedings that the fun really began when the whole school came together house by house for a mass relay. Boys and girls of all skills, shapes and sizes.

It is always good fun on these occasions trying to match the running styles with the sports. It is never too hard picking the first XV as they tend to cross the line taking most of the timekeepers’ stand with them. As the relay began, everybody crowded trackside – some places six or seven deep – and a wall of noise followed the runners around the track. The lead ebbed and flowed – each changeover another set of cameo, sometimes comic roles. There is something about relays that unearth a sense of belonging.

I always enjoyed them – occasionally being drafted into the GB 4x400m team, which probably said more about the state of 400-metre running at the time than any particular predilection for the distance. What speed I lacked, I made up for by drawing on the strength of a two-lap exponent.

My comic moment was anchoring an English 4x400m team against the US – the last event of the evening at a noisy, stuffed to the gunnels, floodlit Crystal Palace. Neck and neck in the finishing straight, and after an entanglement of arms, I accidentally knocked the baton out of the hand of my dogged American opponent. It arced up and landed on the infield – the race was won 40 yards from the tape, and with it the match spoils.

All Corinthian sensibilities out of the window, the stadium erupted – you do not often beat relay royalty in your own backyard. Upon returning to the warmdown area the aggrieved athlete and coaching team challenged my tactics. It escalated quickly and, while more than handbags at dawn, it fell way short of Froch v Groves. Offering him the baton that I was still clutching as a memento of his trip probably did not help. But given Geoff Capes was team manager for the night, it was a safe act of bravado.

My crowning relay moment came a year or two later and a tilt at the 4x800m world record, a rarely run distance. The team comprised a young Steve Cram, who was about to grab his first European crown, Gary Cook, a very good 800m runner, and an up-and-coming Peter Elliott, who went on to win a Commonwealth title.

Elliott, thinking his season was over, was hooked back by promoter Andy Norman from a Spanish beach, and given a few hours to sober up. We broke the world record, which survived 24 years until the Kenyans came along. Oh yes, relays are fun. And that has been the watchword in the inaugural world relay championships in the Bahamas.

Relays in that part of the world are almost a religion and the national quartet of Fynes, Sturrup, Davis and Ferguson created this nation’s where-were-you moment by winning the Olympic 4x400m title in Sydney. A new stadium has been built to mark the occasion and, this weekend, it was filled with passion and colour and a decibel-level that I had not heard since Mo Farah hit the front a few laps from home at the London Games.

We have also had world records, notably the Kenyan women taking the best part of a minute out of the 4x1500m.

This is a year of innovation in our sport. A relays championship has been on the drawing board for many years. After this weekend, I am convinced that it will become a permanent fixture.
