NASSAU, Bahamas:
Two changes have been made to the men's 4x400m team ahead of today's IAAF World Relays final in Nassau, while Usain Bolt is expected to line up in the 4x200m final if Jamaica qualifies, despite whispers he may not feature at all.

According to sources close to the team, Bolt, who was a picture of disappointment and annoyance after the Jamaicans' second place finish to the USA in the men's 4x100m final on Saturday, will be available for the 4x200m final, with the heats scheduled for 6:00pm Jamaica time and the final expected to run off at 8:20pm.

Warren Weir, Jason Livermore, Rasheed Dwyer and Jermaine Brown are down to run the heats for Jamaica.

Ricardo Chambers and Edino Steele replace schoolboy Nathon Allen, who is said to have a slight niggle and Javere Bell for the men's 4x400m final, which closes the show at 9:01pm. The team is completed by Rusheen McDonald, who will run the first leg and anchor man Javon Francis. Steele is down for the second leg with the experienced Chambers charged with getting the stick to Francis.

Also on the schedule for the Jamaicans today are the women's 4x800m final, the women's 4x400m final, which will see Novlene Williams - Mills joining the squad in place of Natoya Goule as well as the women's 4x100m heats with the final also set for later on in the session.
