Overview by IAAF   EDMONTON STADIUM 
Jones collected what would have been her fifth world gold with ease, because her three team-mates combined to give her a lead of three metres over the other anchor leg runners. The United States time of 41.71 was the world’s fastest since Athens 1997. Germany took silver ahead of France, for whom Sidibé ran a storming anchor to overtake the Jamaicans. It was France’s first medal of the week. DOHA 2019  PAST RESULTS/WORLD CHAMPS 4x100m RELAY 367 In 2004, the teams in places 2-8 all moved up one after US lead-off runner White admitted doping violations going back to 2000. Her team was disqualified and the golds were eventually awarded to Germany at the Berlin Golden League of 2004. Three years after that, it was Jones’s turn to admit to cheating since 2000. A third US team member, Gaines, was also found guilty of a doping offence though. Unlike the other two it was not for the period of the Edmonton World Championships.

These are the official results of the Women's 4x100 metres event at the 2001 IAAF World Championships in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Women's 4x100m Relay Final
Just six days since her shocking defeat in the final of the 100m Marion JONES won her second gold medal of the championships, as USA regained the women's 4x100m relay title they last won in Athens in 1997. JONES, the 200m champion, flashed through the winning line, stopping the clock at 41.71, the fourth fastest time in history.
Germany took the silver in 42.32, their anchor runner, Marion WAGNER, holding off France's Odiah SIDIBE, who was only seventh hundredths of a second behind. Jamaica, in fourth, missed a medal by an even smaller margin, just one hundredth, with Nigeria also close for fifth in 42.52.
USA, in lane six, were led off by 200m bronze medallist Kelli WHITE, but she made little impression on Jamaica's Juliet CAMPBELL, one lane outside her. Russia, in lane one, had also started well.
WHITE passed to Chryste GAINES on the first exchange - safe but a little tight - and GAINES took her team into the lead. Germany, in lane four, were also beginning to show, through Gaby ROCKMEIER. GAINES handed to former world 200m champion Inger MILLER, who blazed around the bend to pass the baton to JONES some five metres clear of the rest. JONES hit the straight and headed for home as, behind her, MILLER was already throwing her arms in the air, pointing skywards in triumph.
The battle for silver and bronze was much tighter with five countries in with a shout on the last exchange. Germany's tall sprinter WAGNER had a slight advantage on the rest, and did not let it go. SIDIBE made up ground on Nigeria's Mary ONYALI to snatch the bronze.
