Posting a blistering relay split time in the 4X400-meter relay at Saturday?s Gibson Relays at the National Stadium, Usain Bolt also propelled his Racers Track Club to a record sprint relay victory in the 4X100.
Bolt ran the final leg in the 4X100 meters for the Racers, who stopped the clock at 38.08 seconds, erasing their own meet mark of 38.10 set last year.

Rising young Jamaicans Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson and Kenroy Anderson linked up with Bolt for the record Racers TC run. The Racers B team that included Antiguan Daniel Bailey, placed second in 38.84 seconds and MVP placed third in 39.37 seconds.

Bolt also contested the 1600-metre relay and delivered a smashing last-leg run that was clocked at a rapid 43.58 seconds. The double world sprint record holder had up to 20 meters to make up on the final leg after receiving the baton behind in fourth position.The call for Bolt to add the 400m to his arsenal was intensified by his stellar performance.
