Jamaica entered the tenth and final day of the IAAF World Championships in London hopeful of adding to the meager four medals gained over the previous nine days, and having had three finalists in the women’s 400m would have felt they had a chance of medaling in the 4x400m relay.

After running personal bests to qualify for the finals of the men’s 400m at the IAAF World Championships, both Nathon Allen and Demish Gaye finished just outside the medals on Tuesday, placing fifth and sixth respectively in a race won by Olympic champion Wayde Van Niekerk of South Africa in 43.97s. Steven Gardiner of the Bahamas was second in 44.41 and Abdalelah Haroun of Qatar ran on late to snatch the bronze in a season’s best 44.48s.
