Women Re-run

Women Re-run August 18, 2016


Confirmed: US relay team given re-run

After lodging an official appeal, the United States 4×100 relay team has been offered a chance of redemption.

Allyson Felix had been handing over to English Gardner at the second exchange when she was nudged by a Brazilian sprinter.

The Brazilian team has now been disqualified, and the US team will return to the track for a re-run at 20:00 local time.

Racing alone, they’ll have to beat China’s time of 42.70s to qualify for the Olympic final.
