Warren Weir and Oshane Bailey will feature in Jamaica's 4x100m team in tomorrow's heats at the IAAF World Championships in Athletics.

Experienced MVP man and 100m bronze medallist Nesta Carter will hand over to Kemar Bailey-Cole, who will then pass on to his Racers Track Club team-mate Warren Weir, the 200m silver medallist, with Akon Track Club's Oshane Bailey, a former national champion, on the anchor leg.

The women's 4x100m relay team will feature Carrie Russell on the first leg with Kerron Stewart, Schillonie Calvert and Sheri-Ann Brooks completing the team for the heats.

Two athletes can be added to each team for the finals with Usain Bolt and Nickel Ashmeade the likely options for the men's team and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce expected to be added to the female team.
