U.S. Women Drop Baton in 4x100 Relay
The United States baton woes under coach Dennis Mitchell continue as Allyson Felix and English Gardner botched the second handoff in the heats of the 4x100m relay. The U.S finished the race in last. That they finished the race was perhaps a heady move on their part as Felix appeared to be obstructed by a potential lane violation from the Braziian team. They will certainly file a protest and, in my opinion, the odds are in their favor to advance to Friday night's final.
