Brilliant relay running from our team!

Expect to see the girls get DQd though. Clearly went in Germany's lane during final handover.

Great Britain invade Germany's space? Not for the first time. ;)

Yet, no complaints have been made so the girls are keeping the silver.

No clue who she is but Sydney McLaughlin will destroy her and is the future GOAT.
