On Sunday, the United States won the women’s 4×400-meter relay world championships in a resounding victory, finishing far ahead of Jamaica and Britain in 3:17.79 seconds.
After helping the Americans win gold in the sprint relay, Talitha Diggs gave the Americans a strong start, while Abby Steiner kept ahead of Jamaican Janieve Russell in the second leg.
Before anchor Sydney McLaughlin, who on Friday broke the 400-meter hurdles world record, brought it home for gold with a spectacular 47.91 final leg, they kept the advantage through several clean changeovers.
Diggs stated, “I just wanted to give my squad everything I had.” It felt wonderful,
Jamaica, which won the bronze medal in Doha, came in far last in 3:20.74, while Britain finished in 3:22.64.
