Beijing China – On the last day of the 15th edition of the IAAF Championships, Jamaica earned another gold medal bringing the total medals earned to 12.

With 7 gold, 2 silver, and 3 bronze medals respectively Jamaica finishes in 2nd place behind Kenya who earned a total of 16 medals with 7 gold, 6 silver, and 3 bronze medals.

Jamaica’s women were explosive in their 4×400 metres relay race, edging the United States just before the finish line to take gold in a world leading time of 3:19.13 seconds.

It was an exhilarating race but Jamaica’s Novlene Williams-Mills was resolute in her quest to finish ahead of the Americans and with a burst of speed on the final stretch of the race, she did just that.

Javon Francis had his work cut out for him on the final leg of the men’s 4×400 metres relay race and missed a third place finish for Jamaica for Jamaica by the slimmest of margins.

In the end it was Great Britain that got the Bronze by 0.004 seconds.
