This event was given an extra edge after Torrence’s 200m disqualification, from which Ottey was the main beneficiary. The two would each run the anchor leg. It was Germany who got the best start. The USA and Jamaica had excellent third legs and both Ottey and Torrence received their batons simultaneously. The USA had the sharper exchange, giving Torrence an advantage which she held despite a determined effort by Ottey. The Jamaican’s silver was a record 13th World Championship medal. “We are a great team despite the fact that we couldn’t practise very much,” said Torrence
