Athletics: Bolt in fastest relay

Triple Olympic and world champion Usain Bolt's stirring anchor leg led Jamaica to the year's fastest 4x100 metres relay of 37.90 seconds at the Penn Relays yesterday.

The gold-and-green clad Bolt blasted through the final 100 metres in an electronically timed 8.79 seconds, one of the fastest anchor legs ever, as the Jamaicans crushed two American teams.
