    i don't think it was 50% but it was high. something like 3 teams in one semi didn't finish?

    i noticed that it seems to be a trend lately, not just in beijing, but more recent WChamps, euro champs and other big competitions (compared to years ago). maybe batons are made of new material that is more slippery?

      I think it was at the 2001 Worlds in Edmonton.

        It appears to have been the first round heats of the 4x100 in Edmonton. Williams was running the third leg for JAM and the long jump final was going on at exactly the same time, with Beckford in it. JAM finished last in their heat.
