Asha Philip, Imani Lansiquot, Bianca Williams and Shannon Hylton combine for 4x100m victory at the Athletics World Cup.
The British team finished third overall at the Athletics World Cup in London but while the men were only the seventh best squad, the women were easily the second best over the two days as they carried their good form into the second day.
There was a surprise in the women’s 4x100m as a far from full strength GB team of Asha Philip, Imani Lansiquot, Bianca Williams and Shannon Hylton won in 42.52 as they held off Jamaica’s 42.60.
The USA failed to finish after suffering an injury in the opening leg to Mikiah Brisco.
“It’s always amazing to run in a home stadium with one of the world’s best crowds so that was so much fun,” said Philip.
Hylton added: “It’s such a great team event. We’re really happy to come away with the win and get the full eight points.”
