I was really disappointed in our race though we got silver I expected it in another fashion more intensity, that third exchange giving problems ever since JC handing off to darrell. You even saw that real disappointment from RT, when the jakans and the japs were running around smiling is only THEN he study to get a flag and celebrate  and that's cuz he realized we could have had a better hand off and try to pressure AP into tightening up too much and pip him at the line. Bolt ran the worst leg of the for so much so that Callender (who ran damn well) was making up the gound that carter & frater gave the jakans. With a better hand of we were looking at maybe 37.6 but that may have been too close for comfort for AP and he mighta mess it up.

Congrats anyway to both teams though ah still sour.

Was Emmanuel Callender on third. Armstrong out with an injury

Fellas this was a FANTASTIC result!

To go in and have to replace two men and still run 38.06 and get and OLYMPIC SILVER is great. I have no problem in admitting this team even with Brown, Armstrong and better passes could not run 37.10 this year
 
The reality is that Jamaica ran the race you expect from a team with a 9.6, a 9.7 and two 9.9 with good enough passes. This team broke a 16 year old WR by three tenths!

We needed Jamaica to lapse and they weren't going to after they saw what happened to their women

I cannot say enough about what Keston Bledman and Emmanuel Callender did for this country in that race. I know the last exchange cost us but we were second before that! The poor exchange dropped us to 4th but Richard ran like a BEAST! What a stud!

Keston and Emmanuel came off the bench and helped our two Olympic 100m finalists to the second fastest time we have ever run just missing our NR by 0.06. This team would have run our first sub-38 with a better last exchange and we had our two reserves in!

You have to take small steps to where you wanna get and this is only our second Olympic relay medal ever after a 4x400m bronze 44 years ago. Bear in mind this is only our second ever Olympic 4x100m final ever and our first was four years ago. Now that we have tasted two World Silvers and we have proven ourselves in the Olympics with silver we can start thinking gold.

Competition among our sprinters individually is what we are gonna need to build an unbeatable team. Now that Callender and Bledman have Olympic Silver Medals to show for their first outing they are gonna feel like they belong here. A spot on this team is nobody's birthright and every man jack will have to earn their place. We need ALL our guys to improve and competition for a spot on a team that is now a perennial threat is one of the ways to drive up the ante

Really glad Aaron will get his medal too. He it's the least he deserves for throwing out the rule book and grabbing Richards hand to complete that pass yesterday.

Big Ups to our Olympic Team for their efforts this year. After the 20 year post Hasely drought I'll gladly celebrate 7 medals in the last four Olympics ;D

If u think Bolt ran the worst leg, U definately don't know track. The Trini made up the stagger for like 2 steps (Bolt isn't a fast starter) but look at the lead Bolt opened up in handing off to Powell. He left the Trini in his wake. Man, go learn bout track before you talk. Congrats on the silver still but learn before you analyze.

When they work out the split times we'll see. What fools many people is that Bolt doesn't "appear" to run fast. Just wait for the split times.

I waiting to hear what was Callendar's split.

He was man of the match for me.

The pressure of being a last minute replacement look like it work for him.  It is like when you running from ah dog, yuh does find ah kinda speed yuh never know existed.

That was for the first 100m of the 200m. His split will be sub-9.20.

Lionpaw I don't need to see the spits to know that he was exactly blazing the curve. Bolt made up zero ground on Callender.

Hopefully he get fired up and run the curve of his life. I just hope the passing goes well... so nervous

So said...so done.  Fella ran an excellent split.
