Jamaica again lead in track at Commonwealth games
Jamaican are again celebrating their dominance of world track and field.
"On a wet, grey and blustery evening, Jamaican athletes brought the curtains down on the track and field programme here with three amazing relay runs at Hampden Park, yesterday," gushed the Jamaican Observer newspaper.
In the 4x100m, both male and female Jamaican teams won gold in Commonwealth Games and world-leading times.
"Usain Bolt's blistering anchor leg spurred the Jamaican men to 37.58 seconds to ignite the packed house. He showed little or no sign of his semi-final rust a day before," said the Observer.
"And, as usual, the baton got around immaculately with Jason Livermore, Kemar Bailey-Cole, Nickel Ashmeade, and finally to Bolt to explode to the line".
England placed second in 38.02 and Trinidad and Tobago third in 38.10.
The female team was also heart-stopping in its performance. "On her way back from injury, the Olympic and World Championships gold medalist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was imperious on the final leg. For their games' record and world-leading time of 41.83 seconds, the team completed — by Kerron Stewart, Veronica Campbell Brown and Schillonie Calvert — was awesome in the one-lap blast," the Observer stated.
Nigeria won silver in 42.92, and England bronze in 43.10.
