After their record-breaking effort yesterday, we were thrilled to see the four women on the podium in the final of the 4x100m relay

Asha Philip, Imani-Lara Lansiquot, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita won bronze in the women’s 4x100m relay, replicating the relay bronze Asha and Daryll won in Rio 2016, and giving Imani her first Olympic medal.

Despite a couple of rocky baton changeovers, the women’s speed and sheer grit landed them in third place behind Jamaica and USA, with a time of 41.88s.

“We’ve worked so hard as a team, this medal means a lot to us, we’ve been through so much,” said Daryll. “I’m just super happy, it’s been an amazing championships for me personally: first sub 11, made the Olympic final and now coming home with a bronze medal, I can’t really complain.”
