Jamaica's 4X400m men, women through to final
Jamaica's mile relay teams have advanced to the final of the IAAF World Championship.
Taking the track first, Anastasia Le-Roy, Shericka Jackson, Chrisann Gordon and Christine Day carried the team Jamaica safely to place second in 3:23.62 seconds behind the United States.
Veteran, Novlene Williams-Mills is expected to replace Gordon in the team for the final set for Sunday at 7:05 a.m.
In the men's event, Peter Matthews, Ricardo Chambers, Dane Hyatt, and Javon Francis finished third in their heat in a season best 2.58.67.
The Jamaican men were in second place for most of the final leg but Francis was pipped on the line by Trinidad and Tobago’s anchor, Lalonde Gordon.
He then crashed to the ground writhing in pain.
New national record holder, Rusheen McDonald is expected to come in for the final which takes place Sunday at 7:25 a.m.
