Jamaica men’s 4x100m relay team was forced to settle for a bronze medal spot after being beaten to the finish line by the Dominica Republic and Barbados at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia on Thursday.

The quartet, which consisted of Nesta Carter, Romario Williams, Rasheed Dwyer and Javoy Tucker crossed the line in 38.79, well behind runaway leaders Barbados who took gold in 38.41. 

The Barbadian quartet, which consisted of Shane Brathwaite, Mario Burke, Burkheart Ellis and Shamon Hoyte looked comfortable throughout the race and always seemed the likely winners.  After several smooth changes, the anchor leg Hoyte enjoyed a marginal lead over the field before cruising to the line in dominant fashion.  

Having received the baton marginally behind the Jamaicans on the final leg the Dominica Republic’s Christopher Valdez powered past Tucker to finish second in 38.71.  Yohandris Andujar led off the Dominican effort before handing over to Stanly Jose Del Carmen and Yancarlos Martinez.

The Trinidad and Tobago quartet of Keston Bledman, Jonathan Farinha, Jalen Purcell and Nathan Farinha were fourth after stopping the clock in 38.90.
