Kenya, Jamaica, and United States top medals at World Championships in Beijing
World Athletic Championships Beijing 2015 Medal Tally

In the end, Kenya reigned supreme ahead of Jamaica and the United States of America in the medal tally.

The Jamaican women’s team 4x400M team received Jamaica’s only medal, the gold, on the final day of competition. The two-team race saw Jamaica’s lead by lead off  Christine Day being lengthened signifcantly by Sherica Jackson.  However, Stephanie Ann McPherson was chased down by 400M champion of the USA, Allyson Felix, to give the US the lead on the 4th leg.  However, the great Novlene Williams-Mills, ran past Francena McCrory to take the victory for Jamaica.  USA got the silver and Great Britain was 3rd.

In the Men’s 4×400 M, Trinidad & Tobago finished 2nd to the United States.  Great Britain was also 3rd in this event edging Jamaica’s promising youngster Javon Francis (former Calabar High School standout) at the line.  Francis actually went out quickly to take 1st place but couldn’t hold it down the stretch.  Gutsy performance by the young man.

From my couch, China put on a brilliant event.  Let’s see what the people who were there think.
