Jamaica, the queens of sprints, was dethroned by the USA in the 4x100m relay on the ninth and penultimate day of the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday night.

Twanisha Terry (above) held off Shericka Jackson on the home stretch at Hayward Field to give the home team the gold medal.

The USA clocked a world-leading 41.14, the fifth-fastest time ever and the fastest time on US soil, to edge defending champion Jamaica, which came in at 41.18, the sixth-fastest all-time. They reversed positions from the Tokyo Olympics, where Jamaica claimed the gold and the US won the silver.

The US won their eighth gold medal and 13th overall in the event after placing third in 2019. Read more.
