LONDON – Trinidad and Tobago denied United States a seventh successive world 4×400 metres relay title when they won a breathtaking final at the World Athletics Championships on Sunday.


The US led for most of the race until Lalonde Gordon ran a superb final lap for the Caribbean islands to overhaul Fred Kerley on the home straight and give Trinidad their first world title in this event.

Martyn Rooney put up a brave chase for Britain but was unable to haul in the leading pair and the hosts took bronze.

Trinidad’s time of 2:58.12 was the fastest this year.
