Overview by IAAF  
Day led for Jamaica at the first exchange in 50.3, with former World Champions Ohuruogu and Richards-Ross a surprisingly long way behind. Jackson’s excellent 49.5 served to extend the lead to almost 20m. McPherson ran a solid leg of 50.19 for Jamaica, but was totally eclipsed by Felix, who ran one of the fastest ever relay legs – 47.72 – to give the USA a four-metre lead. McCorory held off the vastly experienced Williams-Mills until the last 25m, when the Jamaican flowed past to win by three metres. A long way back, the battle for third was clearly won by Britain ahead of Russia and Nigeria, though the latter team was ultimately disqualified thanks to a prior doping violation by Adeloye.
