NASSAU, Bahamas:

Jamaica suffered its first defeat in the 4x100m at a global event in over seven years as the United States broke the stranglehold at the IAAF World Relays in Nassau, Bahamas on Saturday night. 

Usain Bolt received the baton five to 10 metres behind American Ryan Bailey on the anchor leg but could not find the power to reel him in as the USA ran away with the race in a meet record 37.38, with the Jamaicans crossing the line in 37.68. 

Japan took third place in a time of 38.20.
