    Have found highlights on ESPN but no full races and nothing of this race.

    I've just done some quick maths based on the last two legs splits, to find the average for the first two legs:

    USA Blue should have been leading after leg two, their first two women averaged 22.64.

    Jamaica averaged 22.71
    The UK averaged 23.13
    Russia averaged 23.47
    USA White averaged 23.84

    USATF has video highlights from 2008. Will likely follow suit in 2009 at some point.

    except the USA/World races as USATF has proprietary rights.

    The Russians are not normally in any sort of racing shape in April, unlike the Jamaicans, who start their season early in spring.

    Yeah I just watched the race on TV, the Russians were close to last at the last baton exchange.

    Also a good 800 by Maria Savinova who anchored the Russian team (finished second to Jamaica). Her 1:58.03 is faster than her open 800m of 1:58.10i.

    http://www.iaaf.org/athletes/biographie ... index.html

    Must have been some race between Sinclair and Savinova?
    No it was not. The USA team's anchor, Hazel Clark, got the baton ahead of Sinclair. Sinclair stayed behind Hazel Clark for the first lap. At approximately 500 meters, Sinclair pulls ahead of Clark and increases her lead over Clark and the entire filed.

    Savionova closes fast to catch and pass Clark in the last 60 meters, but Snclair had already destroyed the field.

    Another world record for Jamaica. But because the IAAF does not recognize the Sprint Medley Relay, it will be officially called a world's best.

    I would imagine that's one of Jemma Simpson's fastest season openers, 2:00.9 as well!

    Was just wondering if there was any chance of getting the splits for the other legs? I imagine a few Brits would be interested in Sanders' 200 and Perri Shakes-Drayton's 400 splits.

    A 1:57 opener is serious stuff though for Kenia Sinclair! I didn't expect the Jams to beat the Ruskies today!
