End of Discussion Rio184
Reportedly there was some argument that the American relay team didn't belong in the final. That brought the foursome onto the track with an even bigger attitude than what carried them through there solo qualifying effort. An effort that produced the fastest qualifying time. So Tianna Bartoletta (USA) game out of the starting blocks faster still. She was the first runner to pass the baton to her teammate. Allyson Felix (USA) picked up where Bartoletta left off and so it went around the track. The team finished four seconds ahead of the Silver Medal of Jamaica and the Bronze of Great Britain. While it was a bit rocky getting to the end of the Women's 4x100 relay, there was a Gold Medal at the finish line.
