China win silver in women's 4x200m, break Asian record at World Relay

(CNTV)    11:06, May 13, 2019

China clinched a silver medal in the women's 4x200-meter final, creating an Asian record of 1:32.76 at the 2019 IAAF World Relay in Yokohama, Japan, on Sunday.

Despite strong line-ups Jamaica and the USA failed to grab the crown due to some worst exchanges.

Jamaica eventually claimed the bronze medal with 1:33.21, while the USA were disqualified because of a foul. France cruised to victory with 1:32.16, a world best this year.

The Chinese four (Liang Xiaojing, Wei Yongli, Kong Lingwei and Ge Manqi) performed well during the transient competition.

Liang and Wei handed over smoothly, and there was a deadly turnover of Jamaica's first-second baton handover which gave the top seed a slim winning chance. China's track position was relatively ahead, and inside-running France took a clear advantage. To the fourth baton, Ge Manqi kept the second till the end and nailed a silver medal for China.
