U.S. reclaim 4x100m world title, Britain take silver

By Christian Radnedge

LONDON (Reuters) – Individual champion Tori Bowie anchored the United States to victory in the women’s 4×100 meters relay at the World Championships on Saturday.

The Americans, Olympic gold medalists in Rio last year, were led off by Aaliyah Brown who flew out of the blocks to start the run that brought them the world title they last won in 2011.

Allyson Felix ran the second leg before passing on to Morolake Akinosun who handed the baton to Bowie, the 100m world champion.

The 26-year-old was shadowed down the final straight by Briton Daryll Neita who led her team to silver ahead of 2015 champions Jamaica.
