However, the main highlight was the evenings final race, the mens 4x100m relay. I thought Usain Bolt was done having won the Mens 200m race on Saturday night. I wasnt sure if he was going to be part of the relay team or not? To wild cheers from the crowd it turned out he was, even though he wasnt in the qualifying round
The Jamaicans risk in holding Usain back till the final round paid off. Not only did they win the Mens 4x100m they also set a new World Record. Usain was the final runner easily pulled ahead of the other runners as he cruised thru the finish line.
This was Usains night to celebrate. Already on a high from last nights Mens 200m win, the crowds and media were in a frenzy with yet another win. Usain was in partying mood and gave us another performance of his now famous victory dance.

This was quite an exciting finale to the final event and we waited now as they cleared the area for the closing ceremonies, which was sure to be another grand show.
