Great performances all around by the US team with 3 of the 4 legs running the fastest splits on the day. The USA is the best 4 x 800 country in the world.

LRC Brenda Martinez was "Absolutely Brilliant"

Kenya won and got the WR as expected but this one had way more drama than expected with Pat Casey handing off in first, David Torrence hanging with Silas Kiplagat and Leo Manzano making it real interesting (for bronze) on the anchor.
LRC David Torrence WOW One of the boldest runs we've seen by an American.

The Kenyans crushed the soft world record and the Americans overcame a violent fall for silver.

What a crazy anchor leg it was in the first final at the loud and raucous World Relays.

David Torrence WOW
