The relay causes the shame of US speed, when staying out of 4x100 despite the collective level of their 'sprins'. They were sixth, behind Ghana, marked by their deficient steps of the witness, something that has become endemic to Americans. This time, however, they did not stay out of the podium or race. They are out of the end. After not having won the hectom or 200, in the era after Bolt, this failure is a sign. Something must be changed.
The quartet was formed by Trayvon Bromel, Fred Kerley, Ronnie Baker and Cravon Gillespie. The first three fell from the 9.90 in the 'Trials': Bromel (9.80), Baker (9.85) and Kerley (9.86). Beyond not overcome in the individual test, it is evident that collectively could be a quick relief. The problem is that in the test not only run, it is also changed.
"We're all running well at this time," Baker said, who made a time of 9.95 at the end of 100. "Trying to coordinate that perfectly with a couple of workouts is complicated. This is this," she resigned himself. Need collective work, something that the United States takes time without taking seriously.
His 4x100 team, in fact, has not won the test from Sidney 2000. In London 2012 they reached the money, but they had to return it by the positive case of Tyson Gay. The sprinter has already done a change of witness that left the Americans outside the final in Beijing 2008. Another cost them disqualification in 2016. However, they had never been seen crossing the sixth goal in a semifinal. A embarrassment that caused immediate criticism in the North American country through social networks. Among them, those of Carl Lewis: "The relay has done everything wrong, in the changes and in the race, we have no team and we have no leader."
In the second relay, Kerley did not give Baker well, who despite recovering ground, was not enough for Gillespie to conclude among the first three, which were China, Canada and Italy. In the goal, they ended sixth, behind Ghana.Date Of Update: 05 August 2021, 02:54
