TOKYO: Jamaica surged to an emphatic win in the women’s 4x100m relay today, posting a national record 41.02s to finish well clear of the US and Britain.

Elaine Thompson-Herah, who now has all three available sprint golds at Tokyo, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson delivered again, after Briana Williams had done her job on the opening leg.

It was Jamaica’s first gold in the event since 2004, after back-to-back silvers behind the US in London and Rio.
