The team included Nesta Carter, Michael Frater, Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt: all of whom, it turns out, are quite good at running.

THE FINAL EVENT of the 2011 IAAF World Championships turned out to be very much worth the wait.

With a team consisting of Nesta Carter and Michael Frater, both of whom have clocked personal bests under 9.9 seconds in the 100m, the new 100m world champion, Yohan Blake, and the discipline’s current world record holder, Usain Bolt, Jamaica annihilated the competition in the men’s 4x100m final in a stunning time of 37.04 seconds.

Not too shabby.
