The 🇺🇸US made the most of their solo re-run to qualify for the Olympic women's 4x100 meters relay final clocking a time of ⏲41.77 seconds. The time, which comfortably beat China's time of ⏲42.70, knocked 🇨🇳them out of the last 8⃣.
The re-run was a result of a successful appeal against the result of their morning heat, in which Allyson Felix bungled the 2⃣nd baton ➖exchange, having been bumped by a 🇧🇷Brazilian athlete before the handover. The US are the world record holders.
🇨🇳China unsuccessfully appealed against the successful USA appeal, being placed 8⃣th behind Canada by just six thousandths of a second😱.
The 🇺🇸United States will 🏃run against 🇯🇲Jamaica, 🇬🇧Britain, 🇩🇪Germany, 🇺🇦Ukraine, 🇳🇬Nigeria, 🇹🇹Trinidad and Tobago and 🇨🇦Canada in Friday's final.
