Anchored by Ryan Bailey, the United States defeated Usain Bolt and Jamaica in the 4×100 relay at the IAAF World Relays meet Saturday in Nassau, Bahamas.
Bailey was running with Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Mike Rodgers, and the Americans posted a time of 37.38 seconds. Jamaica finished in 37.68, off its world-record 36.84 set at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Only other U.S. and Jamaican teams have beaten the Americans’ 37.38 time.
