Event Report - Boys' Medley Relay

A brilliant last leg run clinched another gold medal for the USA in the boys’ medley relay.

USA and Trinidad and Tobago were on an equal footing as the last exchange was made and the two sprinted off on the final 400 metre leg of the relay.

Coming into the final bend, Asseri for Saudi Arabia challenged strongly and momentarily took the lead, with Morgan for Trinidad and Tobago coming back strongly as they exited the bend and entered the home straight, with Nellum for the USA holding on to the pair and then moving up a gear to accelerate smoothly past them and head for home, crossing the finishing line a good ten metres ahead of Morgan.

Asseri was third across the line to take bronze for Saudi Arabia.
