The team has set the record of 37.31 which is seconds only better that their winning best time of 37.10 set last year in Beiijing Olympics. Bolt ran the third leg, handling off to his teammate and individual bronze medallist Asafa Powell as the Olympic powerhouse Jamaica got the new championship record and led the game to their overall win.

Meanwhile, Bold, who already broke his own world records in the 100 and 200m events with best times  of 9.58 and 19.19 respectively, gave his best shot for the third gold medal after winning the relay team event.

I wasn’t really thinking about getting three gold medals because I could be in better shape,” Bolt replied to the reporters.

Trinidad and Tobago and Great Britain settled for the silver and bronze medal respectively while the United States were disqualified last Friday for an illegal baton change despite entering the semifinals round.

It was also a lucky night for the women of Jamaica after winning the 4×100 relay gold medal earlier this Saturday and both their teams qualified for the 4×400 Finals on Sunday.

As todate, Jamaica has already bagged 7 golds, 4 silvers and 2 bronzes making them as the 2nd leader in the overall medal tally.
