Team USA Wins 4x100m Gold With World Champ Tori Bowie On Anchor
The team of Aaliyah Brown, Allyson Felix, Morolake Akinosun, and Bowie beat Great Britain for gold with a winning time of 41.82, a current world lead.
Without Olympic champion Elaine Thompson, the Jamaican team finished third in 42.19. Thompson finished fifth in the 100m final, presumably as a result of a nagging Achilles injury that has plagued her for several weeks.
Bowie's performance took place after she dove to the finish line to edge out Marie Josee Ta Lou to win the 100m final. She returned on Saturday to lead the Americans to victory once again.
Team USA's performance took place one year after winning gold at the 2016 Olympic Games.
