The US quartet of Melissa Jefferson, Abby Steiner, Jenna Prandini and Twanisha Terry timed 41.14 seconds for a barnstorming victory at Eugene’s Hayward Field.

Jamaica took silver in 41.18sec and Germany bronze (42.03).
“This is the most fun race of my life!” said Steiner. “You can hear my voice. I never scream that loud during a race.”
“The race was electrifying. You heard the stadium. The stadium went crazy. We just brought it home,” said anchor leg Terry.
