Jamaica chase relay medals on final World Champs day

Published:Sunday | August 18, 2013 | 7:12 AM





Jamaica looks to close out the 2013 World Athletics Championships in Moscow, Russia with two more medals on today’s final day.



The country’s medal hopes will rest with the men’s and women’s sprint relay teams which are expected to qualify for both finals set for just over an hour.



The men’s team will feature sprint star Usain Bolt, who has already captured gold in the 100 and 200 metres and is on course to end the Championships as one of the most decorated athlete in its history.



A victory for the Jamaican team would see Bolt equalling the American trio of Carl Lewis, Michael Johnson and Allyson Felix with eight World Championships gold medals.



Jamaica’s 100 and 200 metre world champion Shelly-Ann Frasey-Pryce will also be seeking her third gold medal when she competes in the relays.



Jamaica sits in third place on the medal table with four gold, two silver and one bronze.
