USA win last track final

The last track final of Tokyo 2020 is the men’s 4x400m relay.

USA are the hot favourites in lane 4, with Rai Benjamin on anchor.

And they’re off! USA catching Jamaica down the back straight. Isaac Makwala completes the first changeover in the lead for Botswana.

Bostwana from Trinidad and Tobago from USA but it’s all change coming round the bend at the end of the second leg.

Michael Norman has put the U.S. in front and off goes Bryce Deadmon, but Botswana are keeping close! We very much have a race here.

The Dutch are catching quickly too! All to run for on this final leg.

Deadmon hands over to Benjamin in the lead and he opens up a huge lead. This isn’t going to be close.

He rounds the final bend one last time, completes the final straight and USA win gold in 2:55.70, silver to Netherlands, and bronze to Botswana.
