St. Kitts and Nevis relay team places sixth at World Relays…US beats Jamaica

Though the team fell short of gaining a medal on Saturday night at the IAAAF World Relay Championships in the Bahamas, they secured an automatic qualification for the 4x100m relay at this summer’s IAAF World Championship in China and next year’s Olympic Games in Brazil.

St. Kitts and Nevis clocked a time of 38.85 seconds to take the sixth place position, in an exciting race that was eventually won by the Americans with a 37.38 dash down the track, making it too difficult for last year’s winner, Jamaica, even with Usain Bolt, to keep up and having to settle for the silver Medal, in a time of 37.68 seconds.

In third place was Japan, followed by Brazil and France ahead of St. Kitts and Nevis. Trinidad and Tobago and Germany brought up the 7th and 8th positions respectively.

St. Kitts and Nevis made it to the finals when they ran a time of 38.68 seconds in their heats and had they managed to maintain that speed in the finals, they would have secured the third place with the bronze medal.

The team on the track was anchored by Antoine Adams who said at the end that he was elated that they had hoped for a better result but he was still happy to make a qualifying time for the Olympics and World Championships. Others on the track were Jason Rogers, Brijesh Lawrence and Lesrod Roland.

The home team is also expected to compete on Sunday in the 4x200m relay.
