US bag three more golds on last day of track worlds

DOHA: The United States showed off the speed and depth of their squad to win three gold medals on the final day of the world track championships.

US runners won the men’s and women’s 4x400m relays, and US women finished first and second in the 100m hurdles. The US finished with 14 gold medals — their best result at a world championship for 12 years in the last major global competition before next year’s Olympics in Tokyo.

Neither of the relays was a close contest, with the US finishing more than a second clear of Jamaica in the men’s event and three seconds ahead of Poland in the women’s race.

Allyson Felix won a record 13th world championship gold as part of the relay team, though she only ran in the heats. The US used Dalilah Muhammad and Sydney McLaughlin, the gold and silver medalists in the 400m hurdles, on the relay team.
