Caster left it late, but that Russian was damn quick. 6 medals for SA is a great haul.

The first 400 was a little quick for Caster, but she was phenomenal over the final 100m. Great way to finish the games for South Africa. Well done, Team SA :)

Jamaica in a class of their own. New world record.

Suck on that Lewis.

Absolutely amazing race, Blake and Bolt as their 3rd and 4th leg is just so unfair to everyone else. Lewis should complain about it being unfair that Jamaica are so far superior. Anyone know why Canada was disqualified? They looked absolutely heartbroken.

On the results page it has: R 163.3a.

The regulation above was broken - don't know what it is though.

A lane violation at the start of the anchor leg.

Ja ... Lewis should officially protest that :p but the Jamaicans were like poetry in motion. Smooth changeovers and blitz vinning by Blake & Bolt over the last 200m. Sensational.

Still haven't figured out why the Canadians were DQ. Thought is it was the final changeover, but I couldn't see the reason. Shame for them.
