#ReturnToLondon: World Champs dismay ... injury hits Whilby in 4X400m final
Jamaica suffered another disappointment at the 16th IAAF World Championships in London today, after second leg runner Anneisha McLaughlin-Whilby pulled up in the final of the women's 4x400m relay and failed to finish.
The event was won by the United States in a world leading time of 3:19.02.
Great Britain took the silver in 3:25.00 while the bronze went to Poland in 3:25.41.
The Jamaicans were led off by Chrisann Gordon who was the second runner to make the change over to a second leg athlete.
McLaughlin-Whilby was in a good position on the backstretch when she began holding onto her hamstring.
The other members of the team were Novlene Williams-Mills and Shericka Jackson.
The failure of the Jamaican women came a day after sprint superstar Usain Bolt pulled up on the second leg in the final of the men's 4x100m relay.
