Overview by IAAF  
Shericka Williams gave Jamaica the lead in the final, surprisingly heading Britain’s new World Champion Ohuruogu 50.5 to 50.6. The tenor of the race changed on the second leg. Lloyd kept Jamaica in front till just before the 600m point, when Felix went past. The double 200m World Champion had covered her first half in 22.2, and she kept going to record 48.0 for her leg, giving the USA a 10m advantage they would maintain to the finish. Jamaica were four metres clear of Russia and Britain weres a similar margin behind the Russians. Veshkurova and McConnell ran the fastest third legs, leaving Jamaica just one metre ahead of Russia at the final take-over. Richards kept the USA clear of trouble with a well-judged 49.07 anchor.Williams’s 48.93 was enough to hold off Sanders for the silver medal, despite the Briton’s 48.76 leg which took her past Antyukh just before the finish. The US time was the fastest in the championships since 1993.
