On Sunday, the United States continued to dominate the men’s 4×400-meter relay, earning the gold medal at the World Championships with ease.
Eight of the last ten Olympic gold medals have gone to the United States, and they have also won eight of the last ten world championships. Sunday’s victory never seemed in doubt.
Michael Norman, who had just won the individual gold medal, and Champion Allison, who finished fourth in the final, were pulled in to replace Elija Godwin and Bryce Deadmon from the semi-finals, and each man increased the lead as they finished in two minutes, 56.17 seconds.
Belgium won the medal in their individual 20-meter event, with Jamaica taking silver.
