EUGENE, Oregon: A flubbed final handover cost the United States gold in the men’s 4x100m relay on Saturday (Jul 23) as Canada surged down the final straight to take the world title.

Canadian anchor Andre De Grasse did not waste the opportunity and passed Bracy on the final leg.
Britain finished with bronze.
