    It's good to hear though, that Asafa Powell has come away with an Olympic Gold medal.

    I second that..ok its a consolation medal but he has come back with something. I hope he can bounce back and start running some quick times and medals soon..especially now as most JA are saying "Asafa who? 'im sarf mon!" I love seeing the comradary with the JA boys!

    Quality is low, but exchanges didn't look great. They definitely got the baton around safely though!
    quality is great, amof; there is an option to view in high definition.
    thanks, now i can get me some multiple orgasms

    looks like asafa gets the baton at 28.1 sec, right on the 100m startline.

    Asafa

    Yea, if there was any chance of his psyche being badly affected, this should definitely help reduce the damage for Asafa.

    4x 100m WR!

    Congrats to Jamaica for their WR 4x100, Powell, did run an excellent anchor, did Bolt open that up or what? Man, what a turn he ran, frightening!

    Looking at the video, the first exchange looked pretty good. The second wasn't very good, but not too bad either. The last exchange was comical. Clearly Asafa isn't used to receiving the baton from someone with Bolt's speed, as he started running quite a bit later than what would have been ideal, but as Charlie has pointed out, better too late than too early. Normally if he started running then to receive from Frater or Carter, it would have been great timing, but Usain had to slow down dramatically before the last exchange in order to not run Asafa over .

    Agreed. Told you they'd be well into the 36s with good handoffs.

    Asafa flew on the home straight! Bolt did what he always does: open it up.

    But why did they give Bolt the shortest distance man? He should have been doing the 2nd leg because of his sprint endurance.

    Ah well, can't complain. A WR is a WR and Jamaica did it!!

    Btw, USA DID 37.40 TWICE?!!! OMG WTF Carl Lewis!!
