NASSAU, Bahamas:

Jamaica's 4x400m women are safely through to Sunday's final at the IAAF World Relays in The Bahamas, after a commanding win in their heat. 

The team of Christine Day, Anastasia Le-Roy, Stephanie-Ann McPherson and Natoya Goule, who came in for the rested Novlene Williams-Mills stopped the clock at 3:26.41 to finish as the second fastest qualifier behind the United States, who posted a world leading 3:24.05. 

Le-Roy, who, like McPherson and Day was a part of the team that bettered the Americans at the recent Penn Relays, says she is confident that the team can take top spot in the final.

"I am happy with that performance, I think we did well and now we want to go in the final and do even better. We want to beat the Americans again and dominate like your male and female sprinters have been dominating," Le-Roy told The Gleaner. 

The women's 4x400m is set for 9:45 p.m Sunday (8:45 p.m Jamaica time).
