Great Britain’s medal haul grew larger on Sunday night as the women’s 4x400m relay team won a silver medal at the World Athletics Championships.
The United States, as expected, won gold by a distance while Poland took the bronze medal.
But there was yet more heartbreak for Jamaica following Usain Bolt’s disastrous final race on Saturday night, with injury ending their strong hopes of a medal. Anneisha McLaughlin-Whilby, who was carrying the baton on the second leg, pulled up with a problem.
Those at the London Stadium however were more concerned with Great Britain’s effort which saw Emily Diamond anchor the team home in second place.
It was an impressive comeback from the host nation with Zoey Clark’s slow first leg giving her team-mates much to do. However Laviai Nielsen managed to pull things almost level before Eilidh Doyle handed Diamond the baton in silver medal position.
The silver takes Great Britain’s tally at these Championships to five, adding to the two won by Mo Farah and those won in the 4x100m relays last night.
