All Star USA team in the men's win silver as they f**k up final baton change. Canada win it. GB bronze

All Star Jamaican women's team get silver. USA won gold. Germany bronze.

GB 6th after Dina got cramp in the 3rd leg of the race but impressive they still didn't finish last

Can't believe the Jamaican women lost the 4 x 100.

Nigerian women's 100m hurdler Amusan breaks the world record twice in the same day.

First in the semis, then again in the Finals.

Unprecedented.

Sydney absolutely destroys the 4 x 400 anchor leg to bring home another gold.

She ran under 48 seconds, what a phenom.

Amazing world championships all 'round, can't wait for next year.

First one didn't count apparently.

Amusan's winning time of 12.06 seconds would have been an improvement on the 12.12 second world record she had set a couple of hours before, but was ruled ineligible by a tailwind over the legal limit.


Also GB with a silver in the women's 800m. That's a rivalry with the gold medalist winner that can last years
